Rename file in docker container

I’m having a weird Error when i try to run a simple script on docker container on redhat machine, this is the Docker file

From tomcat:7.0.70-jre7
ADD tomcat-users.xml /usr/local/tomcat/conf/
ADD app.war /usr/local/tomcat/webapps/

  • and is the script that cause the problem “only on redhat”

    set -e
    mv /usr/local/tomcat/webapps/app.war /usr/local/tomcat/webapps/client1.war run

    and the error message :

    mv cannot move ‘/usr/local/tomcat/webapps/app.war to a subdirectory of itself, ‘/usr/local/tomcat/webapps/client1.war’

    a screenshot for the error
    and this only on redhat, i run the same image on ubuntu and centos with no problems.

    You can split your command in 2 commands :

    cp /usr/local/tomcat/webapps/app.war /usr/local/tomcat/webapps/client1.war
    rm /usr/local/tomcat/webapps/app.war

    you can edit file inside container and commit changes without buiding image.

    docker commit existing_containername commited_image_name

    then run container with new for example

    docker run –name tomcat -td commited_image_name

    Docker will be the best open platform for developers and sysadmins to build, ship, and run distributed applications.
