Swarm status stuck as pending - can't leave or create new one

(Msuiter) #1

I’m running Docker 1.12.3 on Windows 10 and created a manager swarm and 2 worker Hyper-V VM’s going through some tutorials. On my machine (not a VM) I joined the swarm as another manager. After I was done with the tutorials I left the swarm on my machine and it seemed like it worked. I then deleted the docker machine VM’s and tried docker swarm init but got node is already part of swarm. Then I tried docker swarm leave --force and got context deadline exceeded. I also tried docker swarm init --force-new-cluster and same error context deadline exceeded.

Searches haven’t given much info on things to try so I decided to uninstall Docker, reboot, then reinstall. I still get the same error and docker info shows my swarm status as pending. I also have all my previous images.

Any ideas on how to get rid of the swarm? Should I uninstall Docker and delete the MobyLinux VM, then reinstall? I don’t want to totally mess things up so I can’t install Docker at all.
