I’m new to Docker on Windows. I’ve been testing it on Windows 2016 and I’ve done the following:
Install-Module -Name DockerMsftProvider -Repository PSGallery
Install-Package -Name docker -ProviderName DockerMsftProvider
After this, I’ve got access to the docker command. At the same time, I’ve also noticed that the Containers feature in Windows is installed automatically. I’ve read some other forums and guides that said this is not necessary so I’m not sure if this should be the case.
Also, if I run
Get-Package -Name docker
in Powershell, I do see a docker package there initially but once I restart the Powershell session or restart the computer, the docker package seems to disappear. There isn’t any problem running docker though, the command is still available and the service is still running. I just find it a little odd and don’t know if this should be the case.
If anyone can provide any insight into this, I would appreciate it.
