All data is on separate EBS volumes. The 389-ds version is 184.108.40.206. I'm mainly curious about the right way to use the container, so questions:
> 1. Is the container considered production-ready?
We are supplying a production ready version here at SUSE, so that answer would be "yes" :)
docker pull registry.suse.de/suse/containers/sle-server/15/containers/suse/389-ds:latest
> 2. I see that the container will create a new instance if it doesn't find one. How does it determine that an instance exists?
Inside of the data volume, 389-ds will setup it's structure and an instance, and will then drop in a "marker" file which is /data/config/container.inf that indicates the first-setup is done.
> 3. What setup config options are available to the container? I see mention of container.inf, but it's not clear what all I can put in that. For the install of our current directory, we need to make dse.ldif changes, ACI changes, schema changes and other things. I realize I can do all this after the container creates the bare instance, but I'm wondering how much the container install could do for me.
So the container install does nothing to setup the dse.ldif, aci, schema. It just makes a "minimal" instance. From there you can administer it like any other instance, with the dsconf tools, ldapmodify, or editing the /data/config/dse.ldif by hand.

Shouldn't be a big deal at all :)

That's fine, it just means you can't enforce some properties on the ldap servers but that's not a huge deal. Best practice is just to expose LDAPS on port 636 only from your loadbalancers, as that guarantees all your traffic is secure.
