Docker service "worker" stuck at preparing in stack deploy from the swarm votingapp tutorial

docker
swarm

(Sticker592) #1

I have followed the swarm voting lab from docker and after deploying docker stack deploy --compose-file docker-stack.yml vote every service except one starts, while one gets stuck with status preparing. docker service logs vote_worker is empty and I have tried deploying twice and creating the service manually and it always freezes before the container gets created. I can’t figure out why. Maybe there is a command which shows a verbose output of services after they are deployed so I can see what command it’s hanging on?

docker service ls
