Docker for Windows / CreateContainer error


(Bobprokop) #1

Total Docker newbie here – trying to run simple command from Windows (10) Powershell:

docker run hello-world

Results in:

“Error response from daemon: container [container name] encountered an error during CreateContainer: lost communication with compute service”

…followed by all the “extra info”

What am I doing wrong? Is there some type of security setting that is preventing Docker from running properly? Note: this is a corporate-issued machine which I have local admin rights access to.

I’ve attached what I see in the Settings dialog; seems I’m definitely missing lots of options as shown here: https://docs.docker.com/docker-for-windows/#docker-settings-dialog – “Shared Drives”, “Advanced”, “Network”, “Kubernetes”, “Diagnose & Feedback”

Details for docker version:

Client:

Engine:

Any & all help is greatly appreciated. Thank you!

Note: some have suggested that I’m only seeing 4 options b/c I’m using Windows containers. But switching to Linux results in the following error dialog:
