Z-way server 3.0 docker container (Ubuntu based)

Post by grishman84 » 09 Sep 2019 17:06

Hello All,

I am trying to use Z-way server in Docker as I believe quiet many nowadays. This of course allow great flexibility when running home automaton server so I can have plenty of other application running in parallel without any conflicts. In addition it allows to run Z-way server on NAS devices like Synology and QNAP. However I found it difficult to find a working docker solution for latest 3.0 version of Z-way software for amd-64 based systems. There are plenty of solutions for Raspberry Pi but not as many for ohter systems. I personally found two container images which are to certain extend usable:
1. iblis82/docker-zway-v3.0-amd64
This doesn't have a latest Ubuntu image but a RC from April of 2019. Here I also faced problems of mounting UZB1 Stick into container.

2. acidmaster/zway
This one does have the latest version, but is not working correctly according to the title of the docker.

I am asking if community can share working setups they use with amd-64 based machines running Ubuntu Server (e.g 18.04)
It would be great if docker-compose file syntaxis can be shared as well.
Alternatively if somebody have a recipe how to build a proper container locally on Ubuntu 18.04 this would be appreciated as well.
Many thanks in advance for your replies.

In long term view it would be interesting for Z-wave.me to maintain their own official docker image, but since it might take some time to be accomplished perhaps community here can advice on working container images and setups.

I believe a script to build a docker is the best way. That script should take a fresh system, put latest Z-Way inside and make it ready for use.

If community can share at least a draft of that with us, we can improve it and even maintain in future.

Since docker is something for geeks, having such a script should be even better than just a ready image.

Perfect, script would be great indeed, since container can be build locally without much problems. Hope someone will share it.
