Docker - Installation Docker for Windows on Windows 10

About

In Windows 10, you install docker with Docker for Windows.

The installation provides:

Steps

Host

In the settings change the resource of the host

Docker for Windows requires Microsoft Hyper-V to run. The Docker for Windows installer enables Hyper-V for you and VirtualBox no longer works. These VMs cannot be used side-by-side with Docker for Windows.

I have learned that there is:

_

The host:

  • use named MobyLinuxVM
  • use the iso (C:\Program Files\Docker\Docker\Resources\docker-for-win.iso)
  • store its disk of 60Gb at (C:\Users\Public\Documents\Hyper-V\Virtual Hard Disks\MobyLinuxVM.vhdx)

_

  • is accessible through localhost because of the DockerNat Network adapter

Security

All Windows accounts use the same VM to build and run containers. Containers and images created with Docker for Windows are then shared between all user accounts.

Shared drive

Kitematic

Kitematic Installation:

  • Choose Kitematic, on the Docker for windows menu
  • Download the zip file and unzip it at C:\Program Files\Docker\Kitematic

Credential

Docker use external credential helper that are by default installed with windows (at C:\Program Files\Docker\Docker\resources\bin)

They follows the same file pattern: docker-credential-xxxxx.exe

You set the xxxxx in the configuration file located at C:\Users\username\.docker\config.json in the property credsStore

{"credsStore":"desktop","stackOrchestrator":"swarm"}

More see Credentials Store
