Can we access a baremetal with Docker Machine?

can we access a machine with a docker-machine? should we install hyper-v, openstack/nova, esxi to make it?

we have several machine server, that we interests to make it docker-machine compatible?


docker-machine has a generic driver.

docker-machine -d generic --help

Basically, you feed it ssh credentials and it’ll install docker and make it available to you via the docker-machine interface. I’ve used this for manually provisioned VMs as well as bare metal.
