Windows Containers RRS feed

  • Question

  • Does TP5 support deployment of legacy applications? 

    can we RDP into a container in TP5? If not then what is the alternative method through which we can connect to a windows container?

  • No RDP is not available for Windows containers.

    We can establish an interactive session with a container either at run time using the -it flag:

    docker run -it windowsservercore cmd

    or with an already running container using Docker attach:

    docker attach container-name

    Containers work well for hosting services / applications that are accessed remotely (web services, client / server based apps, back end workers), but not so well for traditional desktop type applications (ms paint, word, etc.).

    Hope this helps.
