Isn't the MobyLinuxVM the default docker-machine?

beta

(Julianonunes) #1

Expected behavior

After installing Docker for Windows, the default docker machine should be created, started and be available for use on docker-compose.

Actual behavior

Docker for Windows creates a VM called MobyLinuxVM consuming 2GB of RAM and when I run docker-machine ps is doesn’t show any docker machine. If I run docker-machine create -d “hyperv” default it creates a new VM cosuming 1GB of RAM.

  3. … Run docker-machine ps to list machines

Difficutlties understanding new architecture related to Docker for Windows
(Jean-Laurent de Morlhon) #2

This is by design - Docker for Windows works differently than docker-machine. With Docker for Windows installed, we recommend using docker-machine only for remote machine creation

Basically, docker-machine expects the machine to be available through ssh which is not the case with the VM within docker for windows.

See Should MobyLinux appear in the results from "docker-machine ls" and "docker-machine ls" doesn't show MobyLinuxVM...is this correct?

Docker-machine name - Docker for windows, what

Thanks jeanlaurent, I assumed that it was probably a feature rather than a problem, since Windows is different from Linux. I just needed confirmation.

Cheers
