How to debug the creation of docker container container in Vagrant

I am trying out a basic example of running a container in a vagrant docker host. For this I created

The Dockerfile:

  • How to enable theme on WordPress on Docker
  • Deploying Rails app with docker-compose
  • Cannot access docker nginx image on localhost - OSX
  • Downgrade to PHP 5.4.45 in Phusion Docker
  • Docker - any way to give access to host USB or serial device?
  • Mounted docker.sock login not stored
  • FROM ubuntu
    #Other instructions

    The Vagrantfile

     Vagrant.configure("2") do |config|
      config.vm.provider "docker" do |d|
       d.build_dir =  "."
       d.has_ssh = true = "vagrant-docker-test"

    When I run vagrant up it creates a virtualbox with the docker-host and a docker container with state -preparing. When I try to see all running containers in the docker host I see none. Is tehre a way to debug if the creation of container failed?

  • Centos VM with Docker getting host unreachable when trying to connect to itself
  • DOCKER_CERT_PATH location in Docker for Windows 10
  • Establishing configurations in new containers
  • Deployment of container-images onto docker on kubernetes
  • How to wait till POST request is finished in GO?
  • Jenkins: a heavily branched chain of build jobs
  • One Solution collect form web for “How to debug the creation of docker container container in Vagrant”

    I also had difficulties working on Dockerfile with the Vagrant Docker provider. In the end I now use a different approach: I use vagrant to run a Ubuntu VM on which Docker is installed ; and I use docker-compose to build and run the containers.

    This way I can get a shell in the Ubuntu vm and run docker build at will.

    Here’s the Vagrantfile I use to get that Docker enabled Ubuntu VM. Also take a look at this answer I made earlier which is related to the subject.

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