For a proof of concept I’m trying to set up docker on a Windows machine. Since I only have access to physical machines with Win 7 I tried to get a Citrix Desktop with Win 10 Enterprise. Docker and the Hyper-V tools were installed OK, but running the “hello-world” container failed - it didn’t even start.
This system does not have a hypervisor. (0xc0351000)
I then set up a Virtualbox VM with Win 10 Enterprise and got the same results. Changing the “Accelleration” settings of the VM did not change the results.
I also tried to un/re-install Hyper-V Tools and docker on both systems several times, as this solved the issue (probably on other OS combinations) for some people, but to no avail.
Is this a general problem of running docker in a VM (which I can’t really imagine) or rather connected to the fact that
- I did something wrong during install/setup
- or the host machine is Win 7 which doesn’t know (and thus can’t “forward”) Hyper-V
- or the guest is Win 10 64bit which already uses Hyper-V itself and can’t provide it for docker?
One thing that I forgot to mention is that the Win 10 guest has a problem with one of the components (showing in the device manager) :
Microsoft Hyper-V Bus Provider for virtual computers (translated from German) is not working correctly.
I guess this is the show stopper, but how to fix it?
