Can't push Windows based images to private registry >= 2.7.0

insecure-registry

#1

Hi everyone,

I am using a private registry on Ubuntu 18.04.1 LTS (with insecure access from Windows Server 2016).

Uploading Windows images from Windows Server 2016 works fine with registry version <= 2.6.2.
But if I use registry version >= 2.7.0, I get following error on the Windows console during docker push:
received unexpected HTTP status: 500 Internal Server Error

When I look into the logs of the registry container, I see messages like these:
manifest blob unknown: blob unknown to registry

I tested these configurations with different registry versions:
docker run -d -p 5000:5000 --restart always --name registry registry:2
docker run -d -p 5555:5000 --restart always --name registry registry:2

I attached the logs for registry 2.6.2 (good case) and registry 2.7.1 (bad case):
Logs_Registry_2.6.2.txt
Logs_Registry_2.7.1.txt

Tested with my own Docker image as well as with the hello-world image (both based on nanoserver).

The push of the Linux based hello-world image works fine, even with registry >= 2.7.0.

This is the docker version output on Ubuntu:

I found out, that the problem does not occur with registry 2.7, if I set the allow-nondistributable-artifacts at the Docker client (in C:\ProgramData\docker\config\daemon.json).

Of course this is only a workaround, not a real solution.

What goes wrong here?

Thanks in advance for your replies
