Docker machine does not exist error


(Papajo) #1

I have a strange situation which deserves some additional help.
I am testing a docker container which I plan to deploy on aws ec2 instance so I believe I performed all the necessary preliminary tasks (docker -compose build etc) of creating a docker-machine etc. Although the command create docker-machine looks like succeeded (after many attempts) the subsequent cli commands say that no such docker-machine exist. I am unsure as to what seems to be the issue here. Has anyone had any similar issues?

docker-machine env testdriven-prod Docker machine "testdriven-prod" does not exist. Use "docker-machine ls" to list machines. Use "docker-machine create" to add a new one. docker-machine ls
NAME ACTIVE DRIVER STATE URL SWARM DOCKER ERRORS

Any help is appreciated. Thanks in advance.
