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.

  • How do I install libgit2 on Alipne linux
  • an established connection was aborted by the software in your host machine Docker
  • docker nginx 502 bad gateway
  • Is there a way to remove a name from a Docker container?
  • Running RC2 project on defined port
  • Docker EC2 & port binding
  • So how can I add an existing host locally without re-provisioning docker or bringing down my containers?

  • Get a circleci environmental variable to show up in docker machine
  • “Create React App” with Docker
  • Docker first user with docker
  • Boot2Docker searching for docker-bootstrap.sock which does not exist
  • Issue when I try to create a docker image [duplicate]
  • docker : When creating a machine, VT-X/AMD is enabled yet
  • Docker will be the best open platform for developers and sysadmins to build, ship, and run distributed applications.
