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

  • How can I restrict ports to a host created by docker-machine?
  • docker - network configuration to isolate two containers
  • Centos and Fedora Docker, I can not start mysql
  • Accessing mysql running in another container by a Jar running in another container
  • Centralized logging for simple docker applications
  • How to install python2.6 in alpine container?
  • 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?

  • Unable to start Docker Container in Bluemix
  • Docker - check within the container if a directory is mounted from the host or not
  • distributed tensorflow using docker
  • Mounting Azure File Storage in Docker container via Kubernetes
  • Set PortBindings config for ContainerCreate function in golang sdk for docker api
  • Connecting to a Remote EJB Module running in Docker
  • One Solution collect form web for “Docker pull or Docker run doesn't actually do anything”

    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.
