Latest Docker Toolbox does not include VirtualBox


(N459pm) #1

The latest Docker Toolbox does not appear to include VirtualBox. Is that correct. I installed it, got no errors and do not have VirtualBox installed. Get errors when using docker-machine to provision a vm.

The latest Docker for Mac doesn’t use VirtualBox for creating a Docker VM. Instead, it uses xhyve. If you want to use docker-machine to create a Docker VM using VirtualBox, you’ll need to install that yourself. I’d recommend trying the out-of-the-box experience before going back to using VirtualBox.
