Docker pull or Docker run doesn't actually do anything

I’m trying to run something called Traildash via it’s docker container on a VM via chef (once I get it running I’ll move it to an AWS instance). So I’ve installed docker onto the VM and so I tell chef to run

docker run -i -d -p 80:80 \

or even

  • Using RabbitMQ in for communication between different Docker container
  • docker networking namespace not visible in ip netns list
  • How to make MySQL container run in the background when configured in docker-compose
  • Building a Dockerfile with Vagrant and the Docker provider: multi-line command chaining returns error
  • PHP application moving to Docker failed to connect on AWS
  • Jenkins on GCE not building
  • docker pull appliedtrust/traildash

    on the VM and all it does is:

    Unable to find image 'appliedtrust/traildash' locally
    Pulling repository appliedtrust/traildash
    2015/03/16 12:40:38 Get x509: certificate is valid for, *
    m, *, *, *, *, *, *, *, *, *, *.jl, *, *, *, *, *, *, *,, astrubba,,,,,,,,,,
    m,,,,,,, not

    and then nothing, the container won’t actually start nor do I see any files pulled unless docker pulls the files into a different directory?

    What do I do to get this running?

  • How to map a virtual host to a container in docker?
  • How to copy a folder from docker to other folder?
  • Mount SMB/CIFS share within a Docker container
  • How to bind publish port in Dockerfile on AWS Beanstalk
  • Docker-compose cannot find Java
  • How to install docker specific version

    You doing everything right. But if you running it outside of EC2 (with IAM Role setted up), you have to explicitly pass AWS creds and optionally other parameters. For more information take a look at

    Docker will be the best open platform for developers and sysadmins to build, ship, and run distributed applications.
