hcsshim::Im portLayer failed in Win32: Access is denied. (0x5)


(Beef85) #1


Steps to reproduce the issue:

Unable to reproduce this issue reliably - it seems to get into this state randomly.
Describe the results you received:
When pulling a Docker container, sometimes we are unable to extract the image. Once the error occurs, the system is unrecoverable and we need to trash the instance. The error that we receive is:

Describe the results you expected:
Expect the container image to be reliably pulled and extracted

Additional information you deem important (e.g. issue happens only occasionally):
Issue only happens occasionally and we’re unable to track down additional information when debugging. Running dockerd -D doesn’t produce any other additional output than the above.

We’ve seen this happen for both the micrososft/windowsservercore image and other images built off of it. What is weird is that we’ve seen this issue with the RTM version Docker version 1.12.2-cs2-ws-beta, build 050b611 and the latest: Docker version 17.06.2-ee-6, build e75fdb8
