Launch a Docker container with a Windows Scheduled Task

Is there any way to launch a Docker container in Windows using the Task Scheduler? The majority of tutorials show this by using a crontab in Linux, is there a Windows alternative?

  • (dockerfile) for flag -v: bad mode specified
  • 500 Error: TypeError (no implicit conversion of nil into String):
  • Marathon Docker Tasks Failing
  • Run apache/php/nginx in background Docker container
  • Docker splunk logging driver - handshake failure
  • Can't start docker service after updating to 1.12.6-176.1 in OpenSUSE:
  • node.js docker image for all environments - including production
  • get the url to connect to marathon app via jdbc
  • Docker will not attach to an image
  • How to do gracefully shutdown on dotnet with docker?
  • SkyDNS does not work with Kubernetes 1.1.2
  • Getting “broken pipe” when building Docker image using boot2docker Mac
  • One Solution collect form web for “Launch a Docker container with a Windows Scheduled Task”

    A “Docker container in Windows” would support Windows images, not the usual Linux images (launched on a Linux host by a crontab)

    You would need a full Docker on Windows solution, and I am not referring to Docker for Mac and Windows Beta, which would run a Linux (Alpine) host on a Hyper-V VM on Windows: that would not run any Windows image, only Linux images.

    I am talking about Docker for Windows (provided your Windows10 has the latest Hyper-V feature). Up to very recently, that was only possible on a Windows Server 2016 TP4.

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