Developer at computer and smartphone abstract design

This blog post is a summary of my own experience for Sitecore Experience Platform 10.3 Initial Release (e.g Sitecore 10.3.0) installation on my machine with the following install guide:

Prerequisites

  • Windows 10 1903 or later
    • If you need to enable process isolation, you must have Windows 10 1909 or later.
  • Windows Server 1903 or later
  • >= 16 Gb of memory
  • Sitecore 10 license file
  • the latest Docker Desktop

Step-by-step Guide

  1. ensure to set up your docker environment by following https://doc.sitecore.com/xp/en/developers/103/developer-tools/set-up-the-environment.html
  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
    • sc1001_1
  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)
    • Table
    • stop IIS
      • Graphical user interface, text, application, website
    • stop windows servicesif any
    • quit Skypefor sure
  4. create a new folder D:\sc1030_install
  5. download and unzip Container Deployment Package
  6. run script to prepare for deployment and initialize the environment file of  Windows Server Core version ltsc2019 and XP Single topology (xp0)
    • adjust D:\sc1030_install\SitecoreContainerDeployment.10.3.0.008463.1135\compose\ltsc2019\xp0\compose-init.ps1 if necessary
    • sc1020_2
    • assume that this file C:\license\license.xmlis available
    • open Windows PowerShell (run as administrator)
    • change directory to D:\sc1030_install\SitecoreContainerDeployment.10.3.0.008463.1135\compose\ltsc2019\xp0
    • execute .\compose-init.ps1 -LicenseXmlPath C:\license\license.xml
    • sc1030_1
  7. let’s pull all the required images from the Sitecore Container Registry, create the required Docker network configuration, and deploy all the containers to the local environment.
    • open Windows PowerShell (run as administrator)
    • change directory to D:\sc1030_install\SitecoreContainerDeployment.10.3.0.008463.1135\compose\ltsc2019\xp0
    • execute docker-compose up --detach
    • sc1030_2
  8. open a browser, navigate to https://xp0cm.localhost/, we would see the default Sitecore pageand a valid SSL certificate
    • sc1020_5
  9. open a browser, navigate to https://xp0cm.localhost/sitecore, we should be able to login with the adminuser and b password by default
    • sc1030_3
  10. DON’T FORGET to perform the following thing as well (Page 12 in Installation Guide for Developer Workstation with Containers)

    • start the Sitecore instances again by executing  docker-compose start
    • sc1030_5
  2. for data cleanup
