I Installed docker on Windows Server 2016.

ike described here: https://store.docker.com/editions/enterprise/docker-ee-server-windows?tab=description

Install-Module -Name DockerMsftProvider -Force
Install-Package -Name docker -ProviderName DockerMsftProvider -Force
Restart-Computer -Force

Now the container runs per default as windows container but i want to have it running linux container.

On My desktop machine I've a tray icon where i can switch this. but on there server there isn't one

So what do i have to do tochange to linux container or how to get the tray icon?


In case anyone else comes across this question, Michael Friis indicates on the OP's post that the new edge channel includes experimental support:

The new edge installer supports installing on Windows Server 2016: https://docs.docker.com/docker-for-windows/install/#download-docker-for-windows27


Its intended behavior

Ok. So far as I know. The Linux containers feature is only available on "Docker For Windows" on Win 10. Not normal Docker on WS2016. ...

Because "linux containers" on Win10 does some smoke and mirrors with a Linux VM. >Not a production solution
