Debian server package does not provide a way to start the server in Docker

      I followed the instructions in https://docs.mongodb.com/manual/tutorial/install-mongodb-on-debian/ to install 4.2 server on a Debian Docker image using this dockerfile: https://github.com/p-mongo/tests/blob/master/server-docker/Dockerfile

      The server installed successfully, however I am not seeing how to start it.

      The instructions at https://docs.mongodb.com/manual/tutorial/install-mongodb-on-debian/ provide two alternatives: systemd and sysv init.

      Since the Docker environment does not have systemd as pid 1 (my pid 1 is bash), I was not successful in following the systemd route:

      root@c501a52f1929:/# systemctl start mongod
      bash: systemctl: command not found
      root@c501a52f1929:/# apt install systemd

      The sysv init route does not work either:

      root@c501a52f1929:/# service mongod start
      mongod: unrecognized service

      According to https://stackoverflow.com/a/53165539/11093943, the sysv init route requires a sysv init script which the current Debian package does not provide:

      root@c501a52f1929:/# dpkg -L mongodb-org-server

      If this SO post is correct, the sysv init instructions at https://docs.mongodb.com/manual/tutorial/install-mongodb-on-debian/ are actually unusable because the package does not provide the corresponding init script.

      Am I missing how to start the server in a Docker container?
