Docker Weave and WeaveDNS issues

I’m having an issue with setting up weaveDNS on a small weave network that I have running on my local machine.

For now the problem manifests itself in the fact that when I run ‘weave status’ I’m not seeing a DNS section in the output (as its suggested in the Troubleshooting section of

  • Cannot read data from a bound partition
  • Deploy docker registry in Jelastic
  • Why does docker “--filter ancestor=imageName” find the wrong container?
  • Strange Docker + Celery Bug
  • In Influxdb, I cannot retrieve correct values in time range
  • Docker in Windows is mounting files as directories
  • I’m running 4 containers. weave ps output is:

    c1d106ed5717 c2:ce:53:49:98:f6  
    8f01765b2ba6 ba:2e:c3:4b:8f:8f

    2847dd89e90d be:8b:d5:74:07:94

    The highlighted container ( is the weaveDNS container. The final container (2847dd89e90d) is the Weave router container.

    I’m starting containers with:

    sudo weave run --with-dns -h service.weave.local --name service service_img_name 

    Does anyone have an idea why weave status is not showing a DNS section?
    If you need me to give you additional info on the Weave setup, please let me know.

    Are you using a release version (0.9.0 at time of writing) of weave?

    $ sudo weave version
    weave script 0.9.0
    weave router 0.9.0
    weave DNS 0.9.0
    weave tools 0.9.0

    If so the problem is that the documentation tracks current master, not the latest release – inclusion of weaveDNS status output in weave status is a post-0.9.0 feature. I’ve raised an issue to support versioning of docs to avoid this problem in future.

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