Cannot install on Azure Data Center edition

(Niksmit) #1

Trying to install on Windows 2016 CTP 5, on Azure.

The only version available on Azure is Data Center.

I get this.

Is it really not supported on this edition of Windows (but is on “Education”)?

Thanks for reporting - we currently only support installing on Windows 10, but WS2016 is on our backlog.

Note that you won’t be able to run on an Azure VM since Docker for Windows requires another Hyper-V VM to work, and there’s no nested virtualization support.

If you just want to install Docker Engine and run Windows containers, see here:

Do you mean in Azure or Docker?

That would be on Azure.
