Cannot install docker-engine on Ubuntu LTS 16.04 minimal in LX branded zone on OmniOS

I followed the guide on the Docker site to install the docker-engine on my vps which is running in a LX branded zone on OmniOS. Unfortunately I got an error during the installation which is probably due to the custom kernel of the host.

The output from the installation process was:

Job for docker.service failed because the control process exited with error code. See "systemctl status docker.service" and "journalctl -xe" for details.
invoke-rc.d: initscript docker, action "start" failed.
dpkg: error processing package docker-engine (--configure):
 subprocess installed post-installation script returned error exit status 1
Processing triggers for ureadahead (0.100.0-19) ...
Processing triggers for systemd (229-4ubuntu4) ...
Errors were encountered while processing:
E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)

Running the suggested systemctl command returns this:

● docker.service - Docker Application Container Engine
   Loaded: loaded (/lib/systemd/system/docker.service; enabled; vendor preset: enabled)
   Active: failed (Result: exit-code) since Wed 2017-01-04 21:03:38 UTC; 7min ago
 Main PID: 27548 (code=exited, status=1/FAILURE)

Finally uname returns the following string:

Linux christian 4.4.0 BrandZ virtual linux x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

Is it possible to find out whether I am having issues due to the kernel or something else?

I’m having the same issue myself.

Any updates here ? Have you been able to run docker in a lx zone?
