Error when loading a docker imager

I have a compressed docker image (call it image.tar.gz) which I’m trying to load with the following command:

$ docker load -i image.tar.gz

I get an “invalid argument” error. I tested docker (1.12.3) after the installation and it worked fine. I also restarted my mac as suggested here (Docker image load failed on mac, error is 'invalid argument') but it did not change anything. Any idea?

    As per the documentation, what you have used seemed to be correct. That is strange.

    May be you can use below command to see if that goes well:

    $ docker load < imageName.tar.gz

    I actually think the image file was corrupted / incomplete, which is the reason behind the error message.

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