Hello, we are writing a bash script to automate the provisioning of an application. One of the tasks that we need to do is to check if a network already exists. we do this using the
docker network ls
command but this command does not list the swarm networks when run on a worker node. How can a worker node determine if a swarm exists?
$ docker version Client: Version: 18.06.2-ce API version: 1.38 Go version: go1.10.3 Git commit: 6d37f41 Built: Sun Feb 10 03:46:03 2019 OS/Arch: linux/amd64 Experimental: false Server: Engine: Version: 18.06.2-ce API version: 1.38 (minimum version 1.12) Go version: go1.10.3 Git commit: 6d37f41 Built: Sun Feb 10 03:48:29 2019 OS/Arch: linux/amd64 Experimental: false
unfortunately for how it is today the logic and for security reasons, workers node are not aware of the resources allocated, only managers do. The idea is that worker nodes received only what is currently needed for handling the tasks assigned
but this is really problematic. is there any update since then? we would like to know if a swarm network exists from a worker node.
