Problem with elasticsearch docker


Following, during create_certs, I have problem "Could not retrieve mirrorlist".

The error :

TLSDocker$ docker-compose -f create-certs.yml run --rm create_certs

     One of the configured repositories failed (Unknown),
     and yum doesn't have enough cached data to continue. At this point the only
     safe thing yum can do is fail. There are a few ways to work "fix" this:

         1. Contact the upstream for the repository and get them to fix the problem.

         2. Reconfigure the baseurl/etc. for the repository, to point to a working
            upstream. This is most often useful if you are using a newer
            distribution release than is supported by the repository (and the
            packages for the previous distribution release still work).

         3. Run the command with the repository temporarily disabled
                yum --disablerepo=<repoid> ...

         4. Disable the repository permanently, so yum won't use it by default. Yum
            will then just ignore the repository until you permanently enable it
            again or use --enablerepo for temporary usage:

                yum-config-manager --disable <repoid>
                subscription-manager repos --disable=<repoid>

         5. Configure the failing repository to be skipped, if it is unavailable.
            Note that yum will try to contact the repo. when it runs most commands,
            so will have to try and fail each time (and thus. yum will be be much
            slower). If it is a very temporary problem though, this is often a nice

                yum-config-manager --save --setopt=<repoid>.skip_if_unavailable=true

    Cannot find a valid baseurl for repo: base/7/x86_64

How to solve it?
Thank you in advance.

Hello @DBond

While the error seems related to Yum defaulting to IPv6 resolution of the mirrors, I think you can remove the command yum install -y -q -e 0 unzip; as unzip seems already installed in the Docker image.

Can you please try removing yum install -y -q -e 0 unzip; from create-certs.yml?

Thank works !!
The guide document should be updated.
