Assign labels to Docker daemon

How do I assign labels to an already running Docker daemon on Ubuntu?

Tried:

  • No containers on Docker Shipyard GUI startup
  • Does the Docker RPM require additional dependencies?
  • How do I put a docker container in an error state?
  • How to get JSF working with spring-boot app in docker container?
  • Best practice for redirecting between docker containers
  • Explanation of this docker file?
  • export DOCKER_OPTS="--label=com.example.storage=ssd"
    sudo restart docker
    

    but didn’t help. docker info need to show Labels.

    The docker configuration section is clear:

    • Log into your host as a user with sudo or root privileges.
    • If you don’t have one, create the /etc/default/docker file on your host. Depending on how you installed Docker, you may already have this file.
    • Open the file with your favorite editor.
        $ sudo vi /etc/default/docker
    
    • Add a DOCKER_OPTS variable with the following options. These options are appended to the docker daemon’s run command.
        DOCKER_OPTS="--label=com.example.storage=ssd"
    
    • Save and close the file.
    • Restart the docker daemon.
        $ sudo restart docker
    

    I would guess “sudo” isn’t copying your environment. You might try “sudo -E”.

    sudo sed -i `'/DOCKER_OPTS/c\DOCKER_OPTS="--label=com.example.storage=ssd"' /etc/default/docker`
    

    did the trick for me.

    Docker will be the best open platform for developers and sysadmins to build, ship, and run distributed applications.
