So long story short we are trying to spin up some microservices that are in the single private repo we have: hkmconsultingllc/ep… and scale them. We have a single manager node and 3 worker nodes spun up using the Cloud Formation template.
On the manager node we logged in and then pulled the image. We did this by accessing the manager node directly using the public IP from EC2 vs. the loadbalancer. This is just a note for you as we also have done it through the ELB. We used docker login to get to the private repo.
Once the image was pulled onto the manager we then used the docker deploy command below to create a service.
Once this was done we tried to scale the service with the following command. This did not show the replica being created.
docker service scale atru_consumerapp=3
All we see when we do docker service ls is 0/3 for the docker containers across the board vs. 3/3.
From a usability perspective we were hoping to use the worker node login to see what is going on using commands like docker ps -a, docker logs etc.
