Docker machine images list?

Posted April 30, 2017 4.9k views

I’m trying to create some machines for test purposes (now i’m testing fedora) but i’m unable to figure out the proper name for each image (e.g. ubuntu-16-04-x64 for Ubuntu 16.04, coreos-stable for CoreOS Stable and so on) is there a list for each image name? (I’m trying with fedora-atomic, fedora-25-atomic, fedora-atomic-x64, etc, still nothing.)

thanks in advance.

Hi @klud

I’m not sure I completely understand what you are looking for, since I don’t understand the “docker” part of your title, but you can find documentation about the images and how to query to get an extensive list:

  • So sorry I wasn’t clear, what I meant is I’m creating some docker-machines using something like this: docker-machine create manager -d digitalocean --digitalocean-access-token XXX-XXX-XXX-XXX --digitalocean-image centos-7-x64 thing is i want to create a machine with fedora atomic ( giving the parameter in --digitalocean-image image-name), but I can’t figure out the correct name for the fedora image, so i want to know if there’s a list of available images to use in the --digitalocean-image parameter when using docker-machine.

      Okay, I’m not sure, since I don’t have a droplet with docker, but you should be able to list all images with docker image ls, but I’m not sure if this is something DigitalOcean has created.
      From the names, my guess would be fedora-25-x64

      • Finally figured it out, it was fedora-25-x64-atomic, though docker-machine can’t provision docker because yum is not present in the atomic version, thank you so much for your help!
