Create Docker-Machine without re-provisioning Docker

I have an existing AWS EC2 instance with docker already provisioned on it. I would like to import this existing host to allow Docker Machine to manage this locally.

To do this, so far I have been using the generic driver. But as you can see in the documentation, it re-provisions docker every time, thereby bringing down my running containers. The AWS driver does not seem to have an option to do this either.

  • Unable to push docker image to amazon ECR
  • Can a dockerfile make use of a data only container defined in the docker-compose.yml file?
  • unresolved dependencies: sbt-routes-compiler and sbt-run-support
  • Docker 1.12 Port Fowarding Services Across Nodes
  • Cannot connect to Go GRPC server running in local Docker container
  • How import file from computer to docker containers with mongodb
  • So how can I add an existing host locally without re-provisioning docker or bringing down my containers?

  • Can Docker Compose build a ZooKeeper discovery service for Swarm?
  • Setting Java Environment Variable for Elasticsearch Service
  • Docker cloud builtin load balancing
  • Composer doesn't see GD extension
  • docker: Error response from daemon: client is newer than server
  • How can I keep docker container alive long enough for New Relic send traced exceptions?
  • Docker will be the best open platform for developers and sysadmins to build, ship, and run distributed applications.
