Docker pull gives error unkown blob for microsoft/windowsservercore

I’ve mac OS as my host operating system and trying to pull an windows image microsoft/windowsservercore . While downloading it gives unknown blob error.

Docker version is 17.03.0-ce and shows OS/arch as linux/amd64. Would it be helpful if I change the OS/arch similar to the below:

  • Export enviroment docker variable to file
  • Docker Container Version Control
  • Docker-Compose Elkstack
  • something confused with docker
  • Docker build image 1GB or too big
  • How can I specify the user inside my docker container?
  • If so, could some one help me on how to switch to windows container from MAC

    Thanks in Advance
