Don’t set both graph parameter in JSON configuration file & Disk image location in Settings
Windows 10, 1809, 17763.1158 - Docker 126.96.36.199 (45183) - Linux containers
I had the “No space left on device” error for a reason quite different from what I read on the internet and wanted to share the solution to my specific problem.
I wanted to change the location of my docker images, and ended up setting both:
"graph": "/D/path/to/docker/imagesin the engine’s JSON configuration file (Settings → Docker Engine)
D:\path\to\docker\DockerDesktopas Disk image location (Settings → Resources)
Then, when trying to pull images through docker-compose, I kept having errors:
ERROR: for image_name write /D/path/to/docker/images/tmp/GetImageBlob<uid>: no space left on device.
After removing the
"graph" parameter (keeping only the Disk image location), I could pull images normally.
I was confused by the fact that on Windows, when using Linux containers, images are not actually on the Windows file-system but in the file-system of the *.vhdx Hard Disk Image File of the Mobby Virtual Machine. But apparently setting both parameters provokes a weird behavior in Docker.
