Installation instructions for deploying the Docker Trusted Registry blueprint.


The Docker Trusted Registry (hereafter DTR) blueprint based on Docker-CS (commercial support) provides a secured, private hosted Docker registry appliance.


CenturyLink Cloud Users


After reading this article, you should have a configured Docker registry ready to be configured with license key and SSL certs.


  • 2 cores, 4GB memory, ~500GB disk
  • A DTR License key obtainable here


To access your application from a computer outside the CenturyLink Cloud network, perform the following tasks after you receive the email notifying you that the Blueprint completed successfully:

  • Recommended: VPN Access (optional) will allow you to access your server over the internal network interfaces.
  • Optional: Add a Public IP to your server through the Control Portal.
  • Allow incoming traffic for port 443 by clicking on the Servers Public IP through the Control Portal.

Deploying the "Install Docker Trusted Registry on Ubuntu" Blueprint

Steps to Deploy Blueprint

  1. Locate the DTR Blueprint.

    • Login to the Control Portal. From the Nav Menu on the left, click Orchestration > Blueprints Library.
    • Search for "Docker" in the keyword search on the right side of the page.
    • Click on the "Install Docker Trusted Registry on Ubuntu" Blueprint.
    • Click the deploy blueprint button.
  2. Customize the Blueprint.

    • Set standard settings for your Server.
    • Customize server name as appropriate.
    • Credentials are not needed for the related tasks.
  3. Review and Confirm the Blueprint

    • Click next: step 2.
    • Verify your configuration details.
  4. Deploy the Blueprint.

    • Once verified, click the deploy blueprint button. You will see the deployment details along with an email stating the Blueprint is queued for execution.
    • This will kick off the Blueprint deploy process and load a page to allow you to track the progress of the deployment.
  5. Monitor the Activity Queue.

    • Monitor the Deployment Queue to view the progress of the Blueprint.
    • To monitor progress, click Queue from the Nav Menu on the left.
    • Once the Blueprint completes successfully, you will receive an email stating that the Blueprint build is complete. Please do not use the application until you have received this email notification.

Access the administrative interface server

After your Blueprint deploys successfully, please follow these instructions to access your server:

  • If a public IP is assigned to the server, navigate in a browser to https://PUBLIC_IP.
  • Over VPN, navigate to the server's private IP address via https://PRIVATE_IP.

The Docker Trusted Registry administrative webapp should load. By default, DTR generates a set of default SSL certs so your browser's security warnings may be safely ignored. Once you're connected to the admin interface, be sure to configure external domain, SSL, and license settings.


The costs associated with this Blueprint deployment are for the CenturyLink Cloud infrastructure only. There are no Docker-CS (commercial support) license costs or additional fees bundled in.
