Installing Docker Desktop for Windows
Docker Desktop for Windows is the Community Edition (CE) of Docker for Microsoft Windows. To download Docker Desktop for Windows, head to Docker Hub.
The installation provides Docker Engine, Docker CLI client, Docker Compose, Docker Machine, and Kitematic. Containers and images created with Docker Desktop for Windows are shared between all user accounts on machines where it is installed. This is because all Windows accounts use the same VM to build and run containers.
Did you Know? Switch between Windows and Linux containers describes the Linux / Windows containers toggle in Docker Desktop for Windows and points you to the tutorial mentioned above.
- Windows 10 Laptop 10.0.143393 Build 14391
- x64 based PC
- Verify if Switch to Linux container is well selected under Preference UI
- Windows 10 64bit: Pro, Enterprise or Education (1607 Anniversary Update, Build 14393 or later).
- Virtualization is enabled in BIOS. Typically, virtualization is enabled by default. This is different from having Hyper-V enabled. For more detail see Virtualization must be enabled in Troubleshooting.
- CPU SLAT-capable feature.
- At least 4GB of RAM.
Checking Docker Version
Run docker version to check the basic details of your deployment. You should see “Windows” listed as the operating system for the Docker client and the Docker Engine:
Client: Docker Engine - Community Version: 18.09.2 API version: 1.39 Go version: go1.10.8 Git commit: 6247962 Built: Sun Feb 10 04:12:31 2019 OS/Arch: windows/amd64 Experimental: false Server: Docker Engine - Community Engine: Version: 18.09.2 API version: 1.39 (minimum version 1.12) Go version: go1.10.6 Git commit: 6247962 Built: Sun Feb 10 04:13:06 2019 OS/Arch: linux/amd64 Experimental: true Kubernetes: Version: v1.10.11 StackAPI: Unknown PS C:\Users\Ajeet_Raina>
The OS/Arch field tells you the operating system and CPU architecture you’re using. Docker is cross-platform, so you can manage Windows Docker servers from a Linux client and vice-versa, using the same docker commands.
Running Linux Application on Docker Desktop for Windows Platform
Running Your First NGINX application
PS C:\Users\Ajeet_Raina> docker run -d -p 80:80 nginx 567450d768e42e521bf3cec945d07bc3f796b6c5503d971881f5169e30a73215
Running Your First Nginx based Docker Container
PS C:\Users\Ajeet_Raina> docker run -d -p 81:80 ajeetraina/hellowhale 33e673c86f63990cdac2c155bc6bfe20a7b7809b82434908bc38517ae029d0e8
Try running WIndows Based Docker Container
PS C:\Users\Ajeet_Raina> docker container run -d -p 84:80 --name iis microsoft/iis Unable to find image 'microsoft/iis:latest' locally latest: Pulling from microsoft/iis C:\Program Files\Docker\Docker\Resources\bin\docker.exe: no matching manifest for unknown in the manifest list entries. See 'C:\Program Files\Docker\Docker\Resources\bin\docker.exe run --help'. PS C:\Users\Ajeet_Raina>
This was expected as we are currently switched to Linux containers
Creating Docker Swarm Cluster
PS C:\Users\Ajeet_Raina\docker101\play-with-docker\wordpress> docker swarm init Swarm initialized: current node (29g3oqgz89f9g7gyicgq8h1o2) is now a manager. To add a worker to this swarm, run the following command: docker swarm join --token SWMTKN-1-1gz58w1cgci63er4dhl6rkhhg29umkkt373ic85hpb3ywvtvqg-4ersf0a9dz00ime4xy 168.65.3:2377 To add a manager to this swarm, run 'docker swarm join-token manager' and follow the instructions. PS C:\Users\Ajeet_Raina\docker101\play-with-docker\wordpress>
Verifying Single Node Cluster
PS C:\Users\Ajeet_Raina\docker101\play-with-docker\wordpress> docker node ls ID HOSTNAME STATUS AVAILABILITY MANAGER STATUS ENGINE VERSION 29g3oqgz89f9g7gyicgq8h1o2 * linuxkit-00155d1fffe2 Ready Active Leader 18.09. 2
Running Linux based WordPress Application
Let us first stop the last 2 containers which listen on port 80 and 81 and then follow the below command to bring up WordPress App
PS C:\Users\Ajeet_Raina\docker101\play-with-docker\wordpress\example1> docker stack deploy --orchestrator=swarm -c stack.yml myapp10 .yml myapp10 Ignoring unsupported options: restart Creating network myapp10_default Creating service myapp10_db Creating service myapp10_wordpress PS C:\Users\Ajeet_Raina\docker101\play-with-docker\wordpress\example1>
Verifying the Stack
PS C:\Users\Ajeet_Raina\docker101\play-with-docker\wordpress\example1> docker stack --orchestrator=swarm ls NAME SERVICES ORCHESTRATOR myapp10 2 Swarm PS C:\Users\Ajeet_Raina\docker101\play-with-docker\wordpress\example1>
Running Docker Swarm Visualizer
PS C:\Users\Ajeet_Raina\docker101\play-with-docker\visualizer> docker-compose up -d WARNING: Some services (visualizer) use the 'deploy' key, which will be ignored. Compose does not support 'deploy' configu ration - use `docker stack deploy` to deploy to a swarm. WARNING: The Docker Engine you're using is running in swarm mode. Compose does not use swarm mode to deploy services to multiple nodes in a swarm. All containers will be scheduled on the c urrent node. To deploy your application across the swarm, use `docker stack deploy`.
