Docker Import tar image failing on with path not found issue

I am trying to export an Windows Server core image from a internet connected host to an non-internet connected host, I was able to successfully export the image (.tar) after an recent fix 1.13.0 which fixed the export issue due to checksum issue.

I am facing an issue where when I try to import the tar image back into the different host, it always fails with path not found even though I create the same folder and try import, it fails next time with a new folder name as shown below.

Can anyone help as to why the import is failing … Thanks in advance.


PS C:\Program Files\docker> docker import ‘C:\Users\\Downloads\wsc2.tar’ microsoft:windowsservercore

PS C:\Program Files\docker> docker import ‘C:\Users\\Downloads\wsc2.tar’ - microsoft:windowsservercore
