Start vault with file backend

~ docker run --rm --cap-add=IPC_LOCK --name vault -e 'VAULT_LOCAL_CONFIG={"api_addr": "", "backend": {"file": {"path": "/vault/file"}}, "default_lease_ttl": "168h", "max_lease_ttl": "720h",  "listener": { "tcp": { "address": "", "tls_disable": 1 } }, "ui": true}' vault server
==> Vault server configuration:

             Api Address:

Vault initialization

~ docker exec -it vault /bin/sh
~ export VAULT_ADDR=''
~ cat > vaultpolicy.hcl <<EOF

Initial Root Token: s.zaU4Gbcu0Wh46uj2V3VuUde0

Vault initialized with 5 key shares and a key threshold of 3. Please securely
distribute the key shares printed above. When the Vault is re-sealed,
restarted, or stopped, you must supply at least 3 of these keys to unseal it
before it can start servicing requests.

Vault does not store the generated master key. Without at least 3 key to
reconstruct the master key, Vault will remain permanently sealed!

It is possible to generate new unseal keys, provided you have a quorum of
existing unseal keys shares. See "vault operator rekey" for more information.

Vault unseal to add new settings

Use any of the previously generated keys to unseal the vault

~ vault operator unseal <key_1>
~ vault operator unseal <key_2>
~ vault operator unseal <key_3>
