Docker re-pushes pre-existing images to private registry


(Rkuzsma) #1

I pulled an image from my private registry (running registry:2 from Hub), then immediately pushed it again. I expected to see “Layer already exists” for all layers, but one of the layers re-pushed:

$ docker pull my-private-repo.redacted.com/my-image:1.0.0
1.0.0: Pulling from my-image
Digest: sha256:4d61fd5419960151dc37a3fa4ba0e0a8236de2f816cbaf7445c550938e1d1b1b
Status: Image is up to date for my-private-repo.redacted.com/my-image:1.0.0

$ docker push my-private-repo.redacted.com/my-image:1.0.0
The push refers to a repository [my-private-repo.redacted.com/my-image]
72766d235de7: Layer already exists
694887710c2a: Layer already exists
8b53afdf0fad: Layer already exists

5a5b72363265: Layer already exists
c7b3a0504d15: Layer already exists

I’m the only user of the repo.

The image in question was originally built and pushed to the registry from a Linux machine:

Client:
 Version:      17.06.2-ce
 API version:  1.30
 Go version:   go1.8.3
 Git commit:   cec0b72

 Git commit:   cec0b72

 Experimental: false

I then pulled and pushed the image from a Mac

Client:
 Version:      17.06.0-ce

 Go version:   go1.8.3

Why does Docker upload pre-existing images? The image layers are the same.

Thanks,
