CMS Sitrecore XP 10.1 Update 2

Prerequisites

  • Windows 10 version 1809 or higher

Step-by-step Guide

  1. ensure to set up your docker environment by following https://containers.doc.sitecore.com/docs/environment-setup
  2. try to bypass some common network issues by setting DNS servers in the Docker engine configuration:
    • open Docker Desktop and then select Settings => Docker Engine
    • ensure the value of the “dns” key is set to [“8.8.8.8”] if any
    • click Apply & Restart button
    • DNS is set at 8.8.8.8
  3. to avoid any conflicts, we should ensure the following ports are not being used by another process: 443, 8079, 8984, and14330 (Page 6 in Installation Guide for Developer Workstation with Containers)
