Enable Docker Remote API – raspberry pi / raspbian

My starting point is:

  • How to use docker remote api to create container?,

so I edit /etc/init/docker.conf and update 2 occurrences of the DOCKER_OPTS variable to:

  • Moving docker-compose containersets around between hosts
  • How to config port in docker
  • How to expose ports between docker images in different sub-networks?
  • How to maintain sticky session(session persistence) with docker swarm?
  • How many docker containers can i run simultaneously on single host?
  • How to run maven test with mysql running in docker
  • DOCKER_OPTS='-H tcp:// -H unix:///var/run/docker.sock'

    Then, a simple test to list docker images fails:

    $ service docker restart
    $ curl -X GET
    curl: (7) Failed to connect to port 4243: Connection refused

    Docker version is:

    $ sudo docker version
     Version:      1.12.3
     API version:  1.24
     Go version:   go1.6.3

    Not tested this, but if it’s Jessie, then it uses systemd by default as the init system iirc, and this has implications for how the daemon (dockerd) is configured and started.

    So you’re editing the /etc/init/docker.conf file but I don’t think that’s being read / used.

    Take a read of this article on different startup procedures on each init system in Docker, and this for specific systemd configuration.

    The solution comes from the comments of this page: http://www.virtuallyghetto.com/2014/07/quick-tip-how-to-enable-docker-remote-api.html

    Thanks, that put me in the right direction. However since Ubuntu 16.04
    with its systemd docker daemon the /etc/default/docker is no longer
    effective. Instead you need to create a systemd dropin file.

    I placed such a file under: /etc/systemd/system/docker.service.d/remote-api.conf

    With the contents:

    ExecStart=/usr/bin/dockerd -H tcp:// -H unix:///var/run/docker.sock

    (Yes, the double ExecStart is necessary)

    After that run:

    sudo systemctl daemon-reload // reloading daemon definitions
    sudo systemctl restart docker
    Docker will be the best open platform for developers and sysadmins to build, ship, and run distributed applications.
