Stop/Start IIS using host IIS Manager stops container!


(Bktdev) #1

From my dockerfile you can see I setup the ability to remotely manage IIS on my container. However, when I stop, then start IIS it stops the container! This doesn’t seem correct…

Your base image aspnet has an entrypoint defined (ServiceMonitor.exe), this entrypoint monitors the w3svc process. I think what happens is that if you stop IIS then the service monitor stops as well, which means the entrypoint has completed and the container will exit as well.

Probably have to define you own entrypoint that doesn’t exit when IIS is restarted.
