Can anyone has any idea, please share with us ASAP.

[is] Docker compatible with windows server 2012 r2?

No, Windows Server 2016 is required for running native Windows containers. The kernel containerization primitives are only available starting with WS 2016.


Is there any alternative way of running docker on Windows Server 2012 R2?

running docker-compatible vm on your windows server 2012 r2 machine and running docker through there is probably the only way
