Change Default Docker Image Download Location in Fedora 23
Can anyone suggest how to change docker image download location?
right now it is stored in /var/lib/docker (500mb only free space).
I referred below links
How to change the docker image installation directory?
but it does not match with my configuration eg. /etc/sysconfig/docker I could not find this file. I followed this link to install (install with dnf method). I am trying to find where it is get install by using linux cli command
find / -name -type f "docker" it list /usr/bin/docker. I could not able to open this file in editor it seem like shell script. open that file using VI editor but the file full of junk characters.

There is one tricky way to do this.
What you need is just move your data and symlink it to new location without any config changes.
1. service docker stop 2. mv /var/lib/docker /mnt/hugest/disk/ever 3. ln -s /mnt/hugest/disk/ever /var/lib/docker 4. service docker start
It should work just as before.
I change the default directory using
docker daemon command
1) stop docker
systemctl stop docker
2) move docker images as per your required folder
mv /var/lib/docker /u01/docker
3) start docker daemon with new mount point.
docker daemon -g /u01/docker/
4) open new terminal tab, check the docker images
note: my case docker version 1.11.2, os:fedora23 64 bit
