To use a tracking system, the container image corresponding to the driver of that tracking system must be loaded to a docker engine.

What you should know

When a driver container image is loaded to a docker engine, it becomes a driver container. This process is called adding a driver container.

Procedure

  1. Log on to the IS Gateway web portal.
  2. On the home page, click the Container () tab.
  3. Click the button besides the docker engine label, and then click Add driver container.
  4. In the Add driver container window that opens, enter the following information:
    IS Gateway web portal - Add driver container dialog box.
    Label
    Label used to identify this driver container in the list of containers on the left.
    Driver
    Select the driver you want to install.
    Version
    Select the driver version you want. The latest version is selected by default.
    Port
    Port used to communicate with the driver.
    Network adapter
    Select the network adapter used by the driver to communicate with the IS Gateway service.

    Some drivers require additional communication ports to be open. If necessary, click here to add those ports.
  5. Click Add.
    The IS Gateway immediately downloads the required driver container image from the repository. A notification is shown on the upper right corner of the browser page while this is being done.
    After the download completes, the new driver container is displayed in the list of containers on the left, under the selected docker engine.
