Issue adjusting docker-machine VM size


(Praslea) #1

Hi guys

I’m new to docker and I struggling to find a way to increase docker-machine VM size.

I wanted to add another container but that failed due to insufficient space. So I wanted to add more space to the VM & I created another virtual disk, but still was unable to create the desired container.

Next I tried to create another VM with increased space approx 50 Gb, but I’m unable to make that VM(i.e second) active.

I’m using Windows 7; Kitematic alpha & Virtual Box drivers.
What I want to achieve is to be able to add more containers to docker either by adjusting VM size or switching to a different docker-machine.

Cheers
