Creating of VMs using docker-machine and using the VirtualBox driver

swarm

(Hunger4knowledge) #1

When i tried to create a vm using docker-machine, i’ve encountered an error due to its timing out.

docker-machine create --driver virtualbox myvm1

Error creating machine: Error in driver during machine creation: Too many retries waiting for SSH to be available. Last error: Maximum number of retries (60) exceeded

I have checked the virtual machine itself and it was stuck on boot

I’m using centos 7.4, VirtualBox-5.2-5.2.22_126460_el7-1.x86_64 and docker version is 17.05.0-ce

Thank you in advance
