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 move Marathon to docker at AWS?
  • How do I use docker to run a gitlab-runner for a gitlab-hosted project?
  • What command can I use to find out the version of docker swarm I am using?
  • Enable PAM configuration (limits.conf) for a running daemon
  • Wrap origin public Dockerfile to manage build args, etc
  • DOCKER_OPTS do not work in config file /etc/default/docker
  • FROM ubuntu
    #Other instructions
    

    The Vagrantfile

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

    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?

  • How to force reading docker-compose.override.yml file all the time?
  • docker compose not starting
  • Docker doesn't cache npm install
  • Docker diff isn't showing changes to new files
  • Can't figure out how I have to build my Docker architecture
  • Docker HTML publishing
  • 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.
