Step #1.) Firstly, download the below docker-image of ‘UbuntuWithAWS’ to our local machine :-

docker image pull adityagoel123/ubuwithawsdockimage

Step #2.) Next, let’s see whether this image is reflecting under our docker images :-

docker images

Step #3.) Next, let’s create a container from this image :

docker container run -itd adityagoel123/ubuwithawsdockimage

Step #4.) Next, let’s login inside this container :-

docker container exec -it 028cce033ce7 bash

Step #5.) Next, let’s first update the repositories :-

sudo apt update

Step #6.) Next, let’s add the HashiCorp GPG key :-

curl -fksSL | sudo apt-key add -

Note that, we are basically using the option “-k”, in order to connect in an unsecured way to the server.

Step #7.) Next, let’s first update the repositories :-

sudo apt install software-properties-common

Step #8.) Next, lets add the official HashiCorp Linux repository.

sudo apt-add-repository "deb [arch=amd64] $(lsb_release -cs) main"

Step #9.) Last step is to Update and install.

sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install vault

Step #10.) Lets verify the installation :-

vault --version
