  • Hi,

    Where containers can be deployed?

     

    1 Have a Physical Machine with Hypervisor installed on it.(Comp Name:Docwincnt01)

                    We have installed windows 2016 Server TP3 on Physical Machine.

     

    2. Have Virtual Machines on Physical machine

    We have created  a virtual machine cnt01 and cnt02 (OS:windows 2016 Server TP3) with powershell script provided by MS.

    C:\>wget -uri http://aka.ms/newcontainerhost -OutFile New-ContainerHost.ps1

    C:\>.\New-ContainerHost.ps1 –VmName <containerhost> -Password <password>

     

    3. Have Containers inside Virtual Machines (cnt01 and cnt02).

                    We can create containers with Docker. Docker Tools are being installed while creating vm with powershell script in step 2.    

                   

    4. MS provides two types of Container namely Hyper-V Containers and Windows Server Containers.

                    Hyper-V Containers :     Do not share the kernel, more secured and takes more time in bootingup.

                    Virtual Machine should have Hyper-V enabled to support these containers.

                    Windows Server Containers: They share the base kernel and fast booting time.

     

     

    To have information about containers

    Docker info


     

    To run/create a container

    Docker run –it windowservercore cmd (-it interactive console and image name)


     

    To have information about containers

    Docker info

     

     

    To see Containers :

    Docker ps –a

     

    To create image

    Docker commit name:tag (another image would be created)

    For example after running a container and installing qb . save this with docker commit command

    So a new image is created which has QB in it.

     

    To remove containers

    Docker –rm containername

     

    To delete images

    Docker –rmi –f imageid

    To run existing container

    Docker exec –it imageid cmd

     To know the docker's server and client version

    Docker version
