Docker: Run/Administer an instance of elasticsearch on your boot2docker vm

First ssh into your boot2docker vm, then run these commands:

docker pull dockerfile/elasticsearch
mkdir elastic_search
cat > elastic_search/elasticsearch.yml <<-EOF
path:
  logs: /data/log
  data: /data/data

http.cors.enabled: true
EOF
docker run -d -p 9200:9200 -p 9300:9300 \
  -v ${HOME}/elastic_search:/data \
  --name ElasticSearch \
  dockerfile/elasticsearch \
  /elasticsearch/bin/elasticsearch \
  -Des.config=/data/elasticsearch.yml
docker@boot2docker:~$ docker ps -a
CONTAINER ID  IMAGE COMMAND  CREATED  STATUS  PORTS  NAMES
[whatever]    dockerfile/elasticsearch:latest "/elasticsearch/bin/ 24 seconds ago Up 23 seconds 0.0.0.0:9200->9200/tcp,0.0.0.0:9300->9300/tcp ElasticSearch

Now from your Mac browse to http://192.168.59.103:9200 and you should get a status result.

Now run elasticsearch-head on your Mac (not the vm):

cd /some/tools/folder/of/your/choice
git clone git://github.com/mobz/elasticsearch-head.git
cd elasticsearch-head
npm install
grunt server

Now browse to http://localhost:9100 and:
1) set the connect box to http://192.168.59.103:9200 and
2) click connect

You now have ES running on your boot2docker instance and can access it from your Mac.
