(Softboxudia) #2

i have the same issue… You have solution?


(Shayk) #3

I found out this is related to the TTY, AttachStdin, AttachStdout, AttachStderr properties.
i had a process (also container) starting some other containers setting these properties to true. (more specifically i am using node package dockerode)
the new containers occasionally crashed unexpectedly due to some fault in their code.
the containers wont terminate completely as long as the creating container is running and holding the streams open.
my solution was to start the child containers with those properties set to false.
now if the child containers crash, their process terminates and docker engine restarts them.

Our team also faced the similar problem. We are using the following version of Docker.

(Bopini) #5

This issue exist in 17.05.0-ce as well.

docker exec cmd gave in error:
rpc error: code = 2 desc = containerd: container not found


(Terry Zhang) #6

got the same error.
after restart the docker service, then start the container again. problem fixed.


(Alex Rothberg) #7

I am seeing this error on 17.05.0-ce. In my case this happens after the OS oom killer has run and killed one of the processes in the container.


(Roeeshenberg) #8

Got this error after oom killer too
