On an up-to-date Ubuntu 15.04 machine with Docker version 1.8.2, build 0a8c2e3.
If I run the standard docker-machine test as instructed here:
$ docker-machine create --driver virtualbox dev Creating VirtualBox VM... Creating SSH key... Starting VirtualBox VM... Starting VM... To see how to connect Docker to this machine, run: docker-machine env dev $ docker-machine ls NAME ACTIVE DRIVER STATE URL SWARM dev virtualbox Running tcp://192.168.99.101:2376
So it's running, and I can see it in Virtualbox with the correct user and network interfaces.
So I do the next step to "to tell Docker to talk to that machine".
$ eval "$(docker-machine env dev)"
But when I attempt to do a "docker ps", the container does not show:
$ docker ps CONTAINER ID IMAGE COMMAND CREATED STATUS PORTS NAMES
Why does docker ps not show my docker-machine container?
