Dockerroot vs docker group


(Appleusers25) #1

Hi experts,

  1. on my docker installation ,I do not see docker group, but I do see “dockerroot” group.
    What is the difference between the 2 groups

2.I got myself added to “dockerroot” but im still not able to avoid “sudo”

3.I got myself added to group “docker” and it still doesnt allow me to run docker commands without sudo

Appreciate any explanations solution
