Creating Windows 2016 docker host using Azure driver with docker-machine/ Protecting docker daemon in Windows


(Maksh) #1

Expected behavior

Docker host on Windows Server 2016 Datacenter Technical Preview 5 should be created if you run following docker-machine command
.
PS C:\WINDOWS\system32> docker-machine create --driver azure --azure-subscription-id <my_azure_sub_id>
b --azure-image microsoftwindowsserver:WindowsServer:2016-Datacenter-with-Containers:2016.0.20161012 --azure-location southeastasia win2016tp5-vm

Actual behavior

I get an error
An error Code=“InvalidParameter” Message=“The value of parameter linuxConfiguration is invalid.”

I am trying to set up docker host to be used from VSTS

Prerequisite for a docker host to be used from VSTS is to have ca.pem, cert.pem and key.pem files.

According to https://blogs.msdn.microsoft.com/jcorioland/2016/08/19/build-push-and-run-docker-images-with-visual-studio-team-services/, pem files gets created in in home folder after you run docker-machine commands.

Because I can’t run docker-machine, I don’t have pem files. This is preventing me from setting up docker host in VSTS.

Please suggest how do I set up docker host running on windows 2016 to be used in VSTS.
I looked at https://docs.docker.com/engine/security/https/ but these instructions are specific to Linux not Windows.
