I want to install a specific version of openldap which comes with centos 7.4.1708 centos vault


Below is my Dockerfile

FROM centos:7.4.1708
#7.4.1708 installs openldap-2.4.44-5.el7
ENV container docker
MAINTAINER The CentOS Project <cloud-ops@centos.org>
RUN (cd /lib/systemd/system/sysinit.target.wants/; for i in *; do [ $i == systemd-tmpfiles-setup.service ] || rm -f $i; done); \
rm -f /lib/systemd/system/multi-user.target.wants/*;\
rm -f /etc/systemd/system/*.wants/*;\
rm -f /lib/systemd/system/local-fs.target.wants/*; \
rm -f /lib/systemd/system/sockets.target.wants/*udev*; \
rm -f /lib/systemd/system/sockets.target.wants/*initctl*; \
rm -f /lib/systemd/system/basic.target.wants/*;\
rm -f /lib/systemd/system/anaconda.target.wants/*;
ENV container docker
RUN yum -y install openldap openldap-clients
CMD ["/usr/sbin/init"]

But building the docker image upgrades the openldap packages

Step 6/7 : RUN yum -y install openldap openldap-clients

Thank you for your response. I had to do one workaround, by creating a custom centos yum repo which provided the packages and issue a yum downgrade command instead in my Dockerfile.


    name=CentOS-7.4.1708 - Base

And using this repo and pushing it to docker image before performing the dowgrade

FROM centos/systemd
ENV container docker
COPY CentOS-Old.repo /etc/yum.repos.d/
RUN yum -y downgrade openldap-2.4.44-5.el7.x86_64 
RUN yum -y install openldap-servers-2.4.44-5.el7.x86_64 openldap-clients-2.4.44-5.el7.x86_64
CMD ["/usr/sbin/init"]
