Unable to run build for gitlab-ci using docker on windows server

I’m trying to setup CI for dotnet 4.6 project.
I’m using GitLab v8.5.1 with shared runner v1.0.4.

I have installed a Windows Server 2016 CTP 4 that supports docker and have created an image for gitlab ci runner based on the microsoft windowsservercore image.

  • Within a Docker image, “Slapd stop” succeeds but slapd is still running
  • Binary characters returned when reading from socket.getInpitStream()
  • Docker Server for Multiple Users
  • Docker container not starting
  • kubernetes cannot pull local image
  • How to set Puma workers, threads for Rails in Docker
  • There is my .toml

    concurrent = 1
      name = "docker runner 1"
      url = "http://my_server/ci"
      token = "my_token"
      tls-ca-file = ""
      executor = "docker"
        image = "windowsservercoregitlab:latest"
        host = "tcp://"
        privileged = false

    and .yaml files

    – build

      stage: build
      - echo "Test run my build..."

    When i run a build it fails with log:

    gitlab-ci-multi-runner 1.0.4 (014aa8c)
    Using Docker executor with image windowsservercoregitlab:latest ...
    ERROR: Build failed with: API error (500): hcsshim::ImportLayer - Win32 API call returned error r1=2147942402 err=The system cannot find the file specified. layerId=c1ef764e74b9a93262141455f30229877e80ed9c04b93af6bc73e03568c33790 flavour=1 folder=C:\ProgramData\docker\windowsfilter\c1ef764e74b9a93262141455f30229877e80ed9c04b93af6bc73e03568c33790-1950806090

    Obviously, it trying to create some volume and fails, but i can’t understand which volume or how to setup it properly.

    How could i solve this problem?

  • Docker communication to hardware on host
  • ODBC Driver 13 for SQL Server can't open lib on pyodbc while connecting on ubuntu docker image
  • Docker-Compose Issue with container name
  • Dockerizing nginx and Flask
  • docker networking direct access to container
  • Doctrine missing “WHERE” clause
  • One Solution collect form web for “Unable to run build for gitlab-ci using docker on windows server”

    As I recalled from their most recent Webcast. Currently Windows runners only support ‘Shell’ and dockers are for Linux/Unix systems (Not sure about Mac). With that said, I have no issue using shell executor.

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