After installing and copying from an existing Docker machine, the Docker for Mac application should start up in a reasonable amount of time.
Upon installation, I copied from my existing machine and then the application said “Docker is starting” for a period of around 15 minutes. After quitting the application, I stopped the machine from the command line then re-ran Docker for Mac, and the application entered the “Docker is running” state within a matter of seconds. I would assume that this is due to the machine already running, but being unaware of the internals of operation I’m not quite sure.
Diagnostic ID: A56F7D04-0E38-40D0-854D-6695AB1DDD6E
Docker for Mac version v1.11.1-beta14.5.m
Using OSX El Capitan 10.11.5 (build 15F34)
Steps to reproduce the behavior
docker-machine startusing Docker Toolbox
- Install Docker for Mac, choosing to import from the existing machine.
- After import, when starting up, if the issue can be reproduced, clicking on the menu bar icon for Docker should say “Docker is starting” and stay in this state for a while (seemingly indefinitely, but one obviously cannot wait indefinitely).
- Quit the Docker for Mac application.
docker-machine stopusing Docker Toolbox
- Start the Docker for Mac application.
- The Docker for Mac application should show “Docker is running” after a reasonable amount of time when the menu bar icon is clicked.
