groovysh and X11

Running groovysh I get this error:


java.awt.AWTError: Can't connect to X11 window server using 'myserver:0.0' as the value of the DISPLAY variable

Really weird.... I could fix it only by "unset DISPLAY".

Complete stacktrace is:


java.awt.AWTError: Can't connect to X11 window server using ':0' as the value of the DISPLAY variable.

VMWare, vRealize and Docker

here some statements about vRealize Automarion (VRA) https://blogs.vmware.com/management/2017/07/container-management-vrealize-automation.html

This is the homepage:
https://www.vmware.com/products/vrealize-automation.html

You can quickly open a free account and start an online lab (again, FREE) of vRealize Automation

Hands-on Lab manual is available here http://docs.hol.vmware.com/

I have done the "HOL-1821-01-CMP vRealize Automation 7 - Getting Started"

There is even a course "HOL-1830-02-CNA vSphere Integrated Containers - Getting Started" available at https://www.vmware.com/go/try-vic-hol


This PDF is about VIC containers https://www.vmware.com/content/dam/digitalmarketing/vmware/en/pdf/solutionbrief/vmware-vic-developer-sandbox-use-case.pdf

Oracle XE DB running as Docker Container, and a freaky Docker error

https://hub.docker.com/r/sath89/oracle-xe-11g/

docker run -d -p 8080:8080 -p 1521:1521 sath89/oracle-xe-11g


Error response from daemon: updating the store state of sandbox failed: failed to update store for object type *libnetwork.sbState: json: cannot unmarshal string into Go struct field sbState.ExtDNS of type libnetwork.extDNSEntry.

it seems that the only way to solve it is:

sudo rm -rf /var/lib/docker

then reboot

I did so and it worked (but of course I have lost all my images and containers).

Scary.
