Hey

My docker daemon just crashed out and now fails to start with the following error:

docker.service - Docker Application Container Engine
   Loaded: loaded (/usr/lib/systemd/system/docker.service; enabled; vendor preset: disabled)
   Active: failed (Result: exit-code) since Tue 2016-08-09 10:30:44 BST; 23min ago

No idea why this has happened randomly. I did extend the centos partition a few days ago and have seem some similar threads on the web about this but nothing specifically about this.

Any help would be greatly appreciated Really hope I don;t lose my data :frowning:

Cheers,
R.

I think it was this - https://github.com/docker/docker/issues/15721

Essentially the message is don’t use devicemapper, it can corrupt and lead to data loss. We’ve switched to overlay2 now.
