Enabling Docker Desktop on Azure AVDs


Opening a discussion on enabling Docker for Windows on Azure AVDs. I have not been able to find any documentation specifically referencing AVDs but they are Azure VMs so I assume they should function in the same fashion. I currently have Ds4 v3 Azure AVDs and have followed the guide on enabling Nested Virtualization and Docker for Windows on Azure VMs but the docker engine continually fails to start.

Has anyone else run into this issue and have you found a solution?

Docker for Windows version: 4.23.0
Windows OS: W10 Enterprise 22h2
Azure VM Size: D4s v3 4 core 16gb
Windows Features Enabled:

  • Containers
