Creating docker swarm droplets with Digital Ocean API using Docker for Windows on W10 Pro?
Hi DO Community,
I’m new to DO & creating docker swarms, just getting to grips with the DO API and noticed a large amount of information around using docker-machine using the older local docker-machine.exe.
I’m trying to create a new docker swarm but using “docker service create....” instead of docker-machine.
I have a token and can create using the docker-machine approach as per the following tutorial, but i am unable to create droplets in a similar fashion using my main Docker version on Windows 10 Pro using Powershell.
I believe the docker command should be something along the lines of:
docker service create \ --name swarm_0 \ --hostname swarm_0_master \ --replicas 3 \ --digitalocean-image centos-7-x64 \ --digitalocean-access-token $TOKEN
Any pointers appreciated.
