Orchestrator on Centos 7.9.2009 - problem with docker


i installed the Orchestrator on a Centos box via install script. In the beginning (just after the installation) it worked and i got an healthy und running Orchestrator as i could see via the r7 web interface (IConnect).
I started firewalld with open https und ssd and after some time (i don’t think there is a correalation) docker died and im not able to start docker again.

Does anybody know this issue?

By the way, i would prefer to have a distro which is under support! ::slight_smile:

Kind regards and thanks in advance,


Hi Maurice,

probably come a new Version of the Orchestrator based on Ubuntu.
