Error when trying to connect worker to swarm leader

swarm
docker

(Brianjmitchell) #1

I’m pretty new to docker and I am attempting to build a selenium test grid using Docker containers using 2 physical machines.

I came across swarm to all the 2 machine to share the docker containers network to allow the 2nd machine to attached selenium grid nodes to the 1st machines selenium grid hub.

on the 1st machine i set up the swarm

docker swarm init

and i get the following

To add a worker to this swarm, run the following command:

docker swarm join --token SWMTKN-1-4cfnr57z9uc3vr30qybox4gv54e3rzwmd7n3r6or25eb93vvqc-3crlfdzz1yny7qmnynnps2rrb 192.168.65.3:2377

To add a manager to this swarm, run ‘docker swarm join-token manager’ and follow the instructions.

however, when I move to the 2nd machine to add as a worker I get the following error

Error response from daemon: rpc error: code = Unavailable desc = grpc: the connection is unavailable

both machines are in the same work, both are windows 10 and up to date. i did some people having the same issue and found that opening the required ports on the firewall worked but however, this did not work for me.
both machines are not in a domain, not sure if that’s a factor or not.

when i do a docker info on the 1st machine i have the following
