Docker Windows Container - OS 'Requires Restart'

(Scoussens) #1

How do I ‘restart’ the OS running in a container if it requires a restart after installing something? I don’t see any method to do this, but many things in windows require a restart after being installed.

What’s the software you’re trying to install? Have you checked whether it runs without the restart?

In this case it’s AD Domain Services, which normally doesn’t actually require a restart, but for some reason asks for it here. I’m assuming this means it’s not supported but I haven’t seen a list of what is and isn’t and was wondering if this was a case where anything that requires a restart would not be supported…
