One-Click Docker Droplet

I created some docker droplets few months ago by choosing from the marketplace the available docker image. That created the droplets using Ubuntu 18.04.3 LTS and Docker version 19.03.1, build 74b1e89. Now I wanted to add some more droplets but it seems that the image has been upgraded to Ubuntu 20.04.1 LTS and Docker version 19.03.13, build 4484c46d9d. How can I choose the same docker version? I want to create a swarm and need same docker engine. Thank you. (I see there’s also some API to create droplets but not sure where I find same image that was in marketplace, maybe I can pass that as parameter?)

Hi there @Strobboscope,

A quick way to solve that problem would be to do the following:

  • Take a snapshot of your existing Droplet
  • Use that snapshot to create new Droplets

That way you will ensure that both the OS version, all configuration files, and the Docker engine version are all the same on all of your Droplets.

Hope that this helps! Regards, Bobby
