From Quickstart


We recommend checking out the new version of isardvdi.cfg.example for any new parameters you want to set.

Every time an update is made, the script must be run, which will read the configuration variables from isardvdi.cfg. After doing a, we download the updated version of the containers and restart the ones that have been modified, IsardVDI should be operational again.

cd path_to_isard_source
git pull
docker-compose pull
docker-compose up -d


We recommend configuring automatic updates using a cron that runs the following script.

In case of modifications in the version of isardvdi.cfg.example, the automatic update will not be carried out.

From Source/Build

The procedure to upgrade is as follows:

  1. Go to your src folder
  2. Get new src: git pull
  3. Check if there are any new environment vars in isardvdi.cfg.example that you don't have in your current isardvdi.cfg
  4. Build yml: bash
  5. Now you can choose between:
  6. build your own images: docker-compose -f build
  7. or pull current images: docker-compose pull
  8. Bring the new containers up (upgrades will be automated): docker-compose up -d

Automatic upgrades

There is an script inside isardvdi repo in sysadm folder self explanatory but here you have the main steps to setup in your server:

  1. Install jq package if not already in your distro. In debian: àpt install jq
  2. Setup the cron in /etc/cron.d/isardvdi-upgrades based on the comments inside the script. For example:
