Differences when running in Docker

  • The filesystem in a container is isolated from the rest of the system.  You should use --mount to pass directories through to Schema Compare for Oracle, for example when working with scripts folders and project files.
  • The container is also separate from your host machine in terms of network addresses.  You should use the IP address of your host machine or host.docker.internal instead of localhost when connecting to local Oracle instances.
  • It is not currently possible to use a TNS connection on Linux, please use a manual connection only via the  /forceservicename  switch.
  • You should ensure you run docker commands as root or a member of the docker group.
  • You will need to indicate that you accept the Redgate EULA with the /IAgreeToTheEULA switch. By using this option you consent to the Redgate EULA.
