Error installing docker engine on RHEL 7.3 - Bridge not created

Hi,

I am trying to install docker on RHEL 7.3 (which is itself virtualised in Hyper-V).

I have been following the (simple) instructions on https://docs.docker.com/engine/installation/linux/rhel/ which install docker-engine 1.13.
When starting docker, either with systemd start or straight from the command line, I get the following error:

Error starting daemon: Error initializing network controller: list bridge addresses failed: no available network

I have set selinux to permissive, and disabled to firewalld to see if either of those were the problem, but no luck. I have also tried installing previous versions of docker-engine (1.10, 1.11, 1.12).

I am assuming that the docker install creates several entries in the network devices. On the installation for me, no new interfaces are created:
