It happens quite often, that a container gets stuck in the state “Remove” in our swarm.
ID NAME IMAGE NODE DESIRED STATE CURRENT STATE ERROR PORTS l7v2wlckmtja i4ywvhosu0vtgcheuidcgtjn7.1 nikfoundas/etcd-viewer:latest docker1 Remove Running 18 hours ago
The container in this state is still running. In this case it is not a big deal because it is just a simple web app. But we have other services that cause havoc in this state.
To resolve the problem, I have to remove that container from that particular node with
docker rm -f.
Any idea what this could be. I cannot find anything about this state in the documentation.
