Docker Quickstart Terminal

2/13/2022by admin

Docker on Windows is a little bit different than on Linux. Because Docker runs using features of the Linux operating system which not supported by Microsoft Windows. To run Docker on windows 10, Docker Toolbox will create a Linux virtual machine in VirtualBox and all containers will be created inside the virtual machine.

Once you have installed Docker Toolbox, shortcut for Docker Quickstart Terminal would be created in the Start menu and Desktop. Double click on the short cut to open Docker Terminal. Docker Terminal When you open Docker Terminal for the first time after Docker Toolbox installation, you may be prompted to give permission to create some components required for VirtualBox. You can run docker. Double click on Docker Quickstart icon, then you would see the below docker terminal (docker interactive shell). Verification: To verify the installation, check the docker version ( docker –version ), then you would see the installed docker version as a result. Nov 02, 2016 then I run my docker quickstart terminal in administration mode and stop one image that was in virtual box running and finally now it is ok. Improve this answer. Hi, I would like to create the same we have in Docker Toolbox: Docker Quickstart Terminal. My issue that when I execute docker-machine ls - table is empty, when my Docker is started and I am able to run containers using docker-compose. Also docker run command works well. Could you please help how to do it?

In this tutorial we will learn How to Install Docker on Windows 10 using the Docker Toolbox. You can also use following guide to install docker for Windows 7 and Windows Server 2016.

Download Docker Toolbox for Windows 10 / 7 / Server 2016

Go to following URL docker.com/toolbox and download the Docker Toolbox for Windows 10.

Install Docker Toolbox on Windows 10

Docker quickstart terminal download

After download is finished, run the setup file and install the docker toolbox with default options.

Open Docker Quickstart Terminal

From Windows 10 start menu launch the Docker Quickstart Terminal. The First time, it will run the initial configuration and will create the default virtual machine for the Docker Engine.

Once it is done, you can manage docker from Windows using Quickstart Terminal, Windows CMD, or PowerShell.

To check the Docker version Type:

Note that Docker Engine is running inside a Virtual Machine also called as 'Docker Host' in Windows. If you open VirtualBox you will see a Virtual Machine called 'default'.

We can manage the Virtual Machine with docker-machine command.

To get information about machines, Type:

To Stop default machine, Type:

To start default machine, Type:

Run Hello World Docker container on Windows 10

To test Windows Docker Engine, let's run a simple hello-world container on docker.

Docker will download the hello-world Docker Image and start a new container using the hello-world image. If successful you should see the 'Hello from Docker' message as shown in the following image.

This confirms that your Docker installation on Windows 10 / 7 / Server 2016 is successful.

Once you have installed Docker Toolbox, shortcut for Docker Quickstart Terminal would be created in the Start menu and Desktop.

Double click on the short cut to open Docker Terminal.

Docker Terminal

When you open Docker Terminal for the first time after Docker Toolbox installation, you may be prompted to give permission to create some components required for VirtualBox.

You can run docker commands in this terminal.

Docker Quickstart Terminal Vs Docker Desktop

Let us try running hello-world application using the following command.

How to open docker quickstart terminal

Docker Quickstart Terminal Command

From the message echoed by Docker, we could observe that it has done some activities in the background to start hello-world application in Docker.

Docker Quickstart Terminal Install

  1. The Docker client contacted the Docker daemon.
  2. The Docker daemon pulled the “hello-world” image from the Docker Hub. (amd64)
  3. The Docker daemon created a new container from that image which runs the executable that produces the output you are currently reading.
  4. The Docker daemon streamed that output to the Docker client, which sent it to your terminal.
