Error running Docker contaner on a VMWare hosted Windows 10 machine


(Rajeshkz) #1

I know similar questions have been asked before, but all those questions i got in the search is at least an year old and I’m sure there are new updates to this issue.

I have a windows 10 machine that is hosted on VMWare. I’m trying to run docker container on this machine and I’ve installed ‘Docker for Windows’ on the machine. When running the hello-world container I’m getting the following error.

c:\> docker run hello-world
docker: Error response from daemon: container b631237e1d24f87c3a578a753f550ce30aaaf1b5e21b984db5da7b59a83d7c20 encountered an error during CreateContainer: failure in a Windows system call: No hypervisor is present on this system. (0xc0351000) 

The same instructions works on physical machine with windows 10. Hyper-V is enabled on the guest windows-10 machine.

I’ve found instructions on https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/virtualization/hyper-v-on-windows/user-guide/nested-virtualization but this is related to Hyper-V and not vmware.

Are there any instructions on how to run docker on a VMWare hosted windows OS? My purpose of using ‘Docker for Windows’ is so that I’d be able to run windows-container on the windows-10 guest OS on VMWare.
