    How long does it take to update a server to Domino 12.0.1?

    0.  Preparation

    git pull to get the latest domino-docker changes.

    ./ domino to build the Domino server.

    Depending on the environment this might take 4-8 build automation time. After that you have your new image.
    Of course the new web kit for 12.0.1 needs to be available either locally or via HTTP/HTTPS.

    1. Build custom image

    While my production client was still updating I took the Domino Community Docker image, the domino_container script and built my add-on image with all the additional server tasks and extension managers I need.

    Time: ~15 sec

    2. Update the container image -- in my case on podman

    Next I took a look into the current version running and new available image, I just built.

    Then a single command shuts down the existing container, removes it and brings up the container with V12.0.1. ---

    Time: ~30 sec (because of the server shutdown)

    domino_container inspect
    (Using config file /etc/sysconfig/domino_container)
