How to properly install the Docker on Windows Server 2016 and enable linux containers?

Hi,
I’m having trouble making the docker (latest) one working on Windows Server 2016 and enable linux containers.
Since there is not docker Desktop version, can someone help me. I keep running into issues by following online help.

I tried [Environment]::SetEnvironmentVariable(“LCOW_SUPPORTED”, “1”, “Machine”)

It seems there is no good support for docker on Windows Server 2016.
