Is there a way and if not are there plans to bring the ability to run Linux Hyper-V containers on Server 2016? I’m having trouble finding a definitive answer one way or another. On Windows 10 you can run Linux Hyper-V containers but I can’t seem to figure out how to do the same with Docker in Server 2016. This is taken from the docker-for-windows page here:
Switch between Windows and Linux containers (Beta feature)
Starting with Beta 26, you can select which daemon (Linux or Windows) the Docker CLI talks to. Select Switch to Windows containers to toggle to Windows containers. Select Switch to Linux containers.
Microsoft Developer Network has preliminary/draft information on Windows containers here.
This feature is not yet available on stable builds.strong text
It also appears that this switch is possible with the DockerCli switch of --SwitchDaemon. However, with Server 2016 I don’t get DockerCli installed and I don’t see any flags to dockerd.exe that look like they would allow me to switch the OS/Arch setting.
I’ve done quite a bit of searching and I’m getting a lot of mixed information from “it will never work” to “it should work”. Does anyone have linux Hyper-V containers working in Server 2016? Is it possible? Will it be possible?
