I’m trying to put together a windows docker container that can run .NET builds. Given the dependencies I need the best way to do so seemed to be to make use of chocolatey. However in the install step for chocolatey I am getting a download timeout trying to run the command
Set-ExecutionPolicy Bypass -Scope Process -Force; iex ((New-Object System.Net.WebClient).DownloadString('https://chocolatey.org/install.ps1'))
The full error is below.
Exception calling "DownloadString" with "1" argument(s): "The operation has timed out" At C:\install.ps1:3 char:51 + ... ess -Force; iex ((New-Object System.Net.WebClient).DownloadString('ht ... + ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ + CategoryInfo : NotSpecified: (:) , ParentContainsErrorRecordE xception + FullyQualifiedErrorId : WebException
This seems strange for a number of reasons.
- I have successfully built this docker image on a machine I hand
rolled but the failure happens consistently on our provisioned build
- I can RDP onto the machine and download the script outside the
context of the docker container with no problem
- I can ping chocolatey.org without issue within the docker container
- I can download the content of other sites from within the docker
container (ie google.com)
- I have completely destroyed this build machine and provisioned a new
one (via BOSH)
Conclusion: There seems to be some kind of networking issue related to docker that does not prevent connection to the servers at chocolatey but nonetheless prevents reading the contents of URLs from there.
I am however out of ideas for troubleshooting. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
