docker-machine connect to existing machine
I have a docker swarm all hosted on AWS, created basically along the lines of this tutorial.
To deploy our code, I need to be able to access this swarm separate of the computer where I created these instances. I don’t see anywhere in the docs for the
amazonec2 driver where I can use my AWS credentials to connect to these existing instances.
Some tutorials I came across use a
--url argument to specify via the
docker-machine url to connect to an existing instance, but I don’t see that argument in my most recent docker-machine version.
Other tutorials mention TLS configuration and using that in conjunction with
docker-machine to connect to existing instances, but given unique/secret AWS credentials, this seems redundant and adds a layer of complexity I hope I can avoid.
What is the recommended approach to this?

To get access to an existing instance, you can use the
docker-machine create --driver generic command. The command will ssh onto the machine, make sure docker is installed, and then download certificates that it stores for future access e.g. using docker-compose.
docker-machine create \ --driver generic --generic-ip-address=<your_ip> --generic-ssh-key ~/.ssh/id_rsa \ vm
