Dynatrace's OneAgent Docker Container is Broken. How to Fix?



Dynatrace' documentation provides this procedure to run the dynatrace container on a host:


docker run -d --restart=unless-stopped --privileged=true --pid=host --net=host --ipc=host -v /:/mnt/root dynatrace/oneagent TENANT=REPLACE_WITH_YOUR_ENVIRONMENT_ID TENANT_TOKEN=REPLACE_WITH_YOUR_TOKEN SERVER=REPLACE_WITH_YOUR_CONNECTION_ENDPOINT

I run this as a test on my local mac, but the container fails to start due to what seems like a dynatrace package corruption issue (The container seems to be caught in a restart loop):

Traiano:dynatrace-oneagent traianowelcome$ docker ps CONTAINER ID  IMAGE  COMMAND  CREATED  STATUS  PORTS  NAMES069fd6a6e67c  dynatrace/oneagent  "/tmp/entrypoint.s..."  4 minutes ago  Restarting (7) 38 seconds ago  competent_perlman

Checking the container logs seems to show a package corruption issue:

BusyBox v1.25.1 (2016-10-26 16:15:20 GMT) multi-call binary.Usage: base64 [-d] [FILE]Base64 encode or decode FILE to standard output   -d   Decode datatar: short read13:13:43 Started agent deployment as docker image, PID 14313.13:13:43 Container version: Deploying to: /mnt/root13:13:43 Checking root privileges...13:13:43 OK13:13:46 Warning: Configuration params section of the installer package is missing.

Does this point to an issue with the Dynatrace container itself?
