[RESOLVED] Can't access container by service name in swarm mode

swarm

(Saekiraku) #1

I’m using docker stack deploy to deploy two simple service on two servers. But when I inside a container to ping others by service name, it says ping: bad address 'worker'.

And I’m sure the port that swarm mode needed is all available (Port 2377 for manager node, Port 7946 TCP/UDP, Port 4789 UDP), but I still can’t access service by service name.

Here is my docker-compose files:

# manager.yml
# Deploy on 'manager' server 
version: "3.5"
services:
  manager:
    image: alpine:3.8
    command: 
      top
# worker.yml
# Deploy on 'worker' server 
version: "3.5"
services:
  worker:
    image: alpine:3.8
    deploy:
      placement:
        constraints:
          - node.labels.role==lbworker1
    command: 
      top

Here is my docker node ls output:

ID                            HOSTNAME            STATUS              AVAILABILITY        MANAGER STATUS      ENGINE VERSION

Here is my docker stack ps output:

[root@change-manager project]# docker stack ps worker

I found out I have to use the same stack name (service stack deploy -c docker-compose.yml same-stack-name), so that containers can access to each other.:tired_face: OMG, I was tried to figure this issue out for a whole WEEK. Silly me.
