The Random Ramblings

lost? dazed? confused? dont come here then as this aint goona help!!

Playing with docker part 3

CoreOS chosen and installed, as stated in the last post, don't expect it to be quick, I suspect it will depend upon the size of your disk but I kicked it off and went to bed after a few aborted attempts thinking it was doing nothing. A note to the developers, please find a way to tell us something is happening...

Anyway, I can ssh into the machine, I have sudo rights, the command

docker images

returns a big list of nothing but as it is returning a big list of nothing I know it running. lets do a check to see all is good

bleachin@coreos1 ~ $ docker run hello-world
Unable to find image 'hello-world:latest' locally
Pulling repository hello-world
Get dial tcp: lookup Temporary failure in name resolution

The final sentence "Temporary failure in name resolution", tells me all I need, the machine is not able to look up dns. A quick check of resolv.conf confirms that that the cloud start file had added the correct name server


yet it cant find anything. CoreOS is a very new operating system and comes with systemd right out of the box. Ahh for the love of everything new all at the same time, Little detour I will be back...
