Actual behavior

Error response from daemon i/o timeout

Additional Information

This had been working when I was using Docker ver 1.09. when I updated to 1.11.2, this started happening and I am no longer successful from pulling form the AWS ECS repository.
My app servers that ares till running 1.09 work flawlessly and produce the expected result.
I am behind a proxy. I presume that the version 1.09 read from the system environment for proxy info. I don’t know what changed in 1.11.

I also tried creating a brand new Amazon linux box that started with 1.11 as opposed to 1.09 and updating to 1.11. … no luck. again, what am I missing? what changed in 1.11 that my pull no longer works?

Steps to reproduce the behavior

  1. run a pull from an aws ecs repository behind a proxy on Docker version 1.09.
  2. do a yum update - and update your Docker to 1.11
  3. run the same command again and you should receive an i.o timeout.

Confirmed that this is not an AWS problem.
I am unable to pull using the test: docker run hello-world

in Docker 1.9.1 the command works and can pull down the hello-world package to run.
I run it in 1.11.1 with the same proxy settings and I get "You may want to check your internet connection or if you are behind a proxy"
Yes correct I am behind a proxy, why aren’t you using my proxy settings!??!!!


All - this seems to be fixed in Docker 1.12

if you get a storage driver error use dockerd -s overlay2 &

Then make sure you have your HTTP_PROXY environment variable set prior to starting the dockerd. If it is already started, stop it and start again after you set the env variable.
