Docker service getting stopped automatically in Windows Server 2016

(Vishnuvpotti) #1

Hi All,

i am running docker containers in Windows server 2016 .
Occasionally, I can see docker service getting stopped automatically and despite my config in services.msc . docker won’t start.
I have to login to the machine and manually start docker.
This is the setting I made in services console.


I checked C:\ProgramData\docker\panic.log and found this information.

"Failed to fire hook: The interface is unknown."

I checked event viewer and couldn’t find any information

Any idea what is going wrong.

PS: I am using Rancher server for orchestration and have 3 machines where docker is running. I see this issue only on one / two machines. Others work fine.
But yes this is not Rancher server issue .
