Suddenly no such runtime 'default' on Docker for Mac


(Opherv) #1

Expected behavior

Ever since updating to Docker for Mac Version 1.12.0-rc3-beta18 (build: 9996), I can’t perform any action since I get this error

Error response from daemon: Cannot restart container WHATEVER: no such runtime 'default'

I don’t have the docker-toolbox installed. I tried reinstalling Docker for Mac - no luck.

I was under the impression that with Docker for Mac you don’t need to manage docker-machines? Or am I wrong?
How do I solve this?

I have a similar problem on Linux machine. When I tried to start a container it failed with this error:

Error response from daemon: Unknown runtime specified default

Try docker-compose up --force-recreate, worked for me

Ran into something similar. Performed a ‘docker-machine upgrade’ on each node in my 3 node old style swarm cluster, and now i am unable to connect to the swarm. When i look at the non-master nodes, the swarm agent is not running. Attempts to restart the container throw this error:

Error response from daemon: Unknown runtime specified default
Error: failed to start containers: xxxxxxxx
