Systemctl start docker is failing

docker

(Ackris) #1

OS: CentOS 7
UName -a: Linux centos1 3.10.0-327.el7.x86_64 #1 SMP Thu Nov 19 22:10:57 UTC 2015 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

I have installed the latest Docker CE version.

Problem:
When I tried to execute sudo systemctl start docker, I am getting the following error:

docker.service - Docker Application Container Engine
   Loaded: loaded (/usr/lib/systemd/system/docker.service; disabled; vendor preset: disabled)
   Active: failed (Result: start-limit) since Thu 2017-07-13 13:45:01 IST; 8s ago

I followed Issue12087, and tried to replicate the yum install docker-selinux trick. The result was container-selinux is already installed.

Where am i making a mistake? I have browsed extensively for a solution to this problem but to no avail.
