I have a brand new Microsoft Windows Server 2016 v1607 (OS Build 14393.576) on Google Cloud Platform.

I connected to machine through RDP and installed only Containers feature then ran commands below as article here describes.

Install-Module -Name DockerMsftProvider -Repository PSGallery -Force

Install-Package -Name docker -ProviderName DockerMsftProvider

Restart-Computer -Force

WARNING I did not install none of the Hyper-V features

After the restart, I connected again through RDP and couldn't be able to run Computer Management, Task Manager etc. but did be able to open Command Prompt, Power Shell, Windows Explorer.

when I type docker version in Powershell result was

Client:
 Version:      1.12.2-cs2-ws-beta
 API version:  1.25
 Go version:   go1.7.1
 Git commit:   050b611
 Built:        Tue Oct 11 02:35:40 2016
 OS/Arch:      windows/amd64
error during connect: Get http://%2F%2F.%2Fpipe%2Fdocker_engine/v1.25/version: open //./pipe/docker_engine: The system cannot find the file specified.

Then I restarted the machine and can no longer be able to connect to the machine through RDP.

I have done this scenario twice and both ended with same result.

Please advise.

UPDATE I just tested on Microsoft Azure Platform server version is exactly same. docker version returns exactly same Client information. Looks like only difference is it can also return Server values.

Client:
 Version:      1.12.2-cs2-ws-beta
 API version:  1.25
 Go version:   go1.7.1
 Git commit:   050b611

 OS/Arch:      windows/amd64

Server:
 Version:      1.12.2-cs2-ws-beta
 API version:  1.25
 Go version:   go1.7.1

Before you run the docker install scripts

  1. Connect to the Windows Instance.
  2. Open a PowerShell terminal as an administrator.
  3. Type and hit netsh netkvm setparam 0 *RscIPv4 0
  4. Type and hit netsh netkvm restart 0

If your connection to Windows stops, reconnect to the instance.

so it will become

netsh netkvm setparam 0 *RscIPv4 0

netsh netkvm restart 0

Install-Module -Name DockerMsftProvider -Repository PSGallery -Force

Install-Package -Name docker -ProviderName DockerMsftProvider

Restart-Computer -Force
