Problem creating a droplet on DigitalOcean

docker

(Utiq) #1

Hi, I run this command to create a new droplet on DigitalOcean
docker-machine create --driver digitalocean --digitalocean-access-token xxxxxxx --digitalocean-size 1gb docker-app-machine

But it’s not successfully executed, this is the log:

Running pre-create checks…

Do you know what’s going on?

Docker:
Version 17.03.1-ce-mac12 (17661)

docker-machine version 0.10.0, build 76ed2a6

running on a mac OS Sierra 10.12.3

This is a bug in your version of docker-machine (docker-machine version 0.10.0).

What happens is that docker-machine starts the docker daemon with the deprecated “docker daemon” command, but it should use “dockerd”.

This problem can be solved by installing a new version of docker (e.g. docker-machine version 0.12.2), e.g. via

curl -L https://github.com/docker/machine/releases/download/v0.12.2/docker-machine-uname -s-uname -m >/tmp/docker-machine &&
chmod +x /tmp/docker-machine &&
sudo cp /tmp/docker-machine /usr/local/bin/docker-machine

See https://github.com/docker/machine/releases for the latest release.
