Error starting Docker Quickstart

docker

I am using Docker Toolbox on Win 7.

Here is the error I get:
Error checking TLS connection: Something went wrong running an SSH command!
command : ip addr show
err : exit status 255
output :

Error getting IP address: Something went wrong running an SSH command!
command : ip addr show
err : exit status 255
output :
docker is configured to use the default machine with IP

Try docker-machine rm -y default; docker-machine create -d virtualbox default to re-create the machine and see if it helps

Did that. I get still get the same issue. How can I figure out what has gone wrong when it says:
Error getting IP address: Something went wrong running an SSH command!

Try removing all host only interfaces that you have in the VirtualBox GUI (Network settings). This reminds me a lot of issues in the past we’ve had with those.

This worked after trying multiple times.

Nice. Yes sometimes VBox create just doesn’t work out quite as desired.
