Server Fault is a question and answer site for professional system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I have setup a basic redis image based on the following instructions: http://docs.docker.io/en/latest/examples/running_redis_service/

With my snapshot I have also edited the redis.conf file with requirepass.

My server runs fine and I am able to access it remotely using redis-cli however the authentication isn't working. I am wondering if the config file isn't being used but when I try starting the container with:

docker run -d -p 6379:6379 jwarzech/redis /usr/bin/redis-server /etc/redis/redis.conf

the container immediately crashes.
