VmWare server with Docker

I am currently running Xibo 1.7.6 on a Windows 2012R2 box which is hosted on our VMware infrastructure.
I am looking to upgrade to 1.8, in the process moving over to Docker.

Do you know if Docker can run successfully on a VMware box?

I have installed Docker and when I try to run the “Quickstart Terminal”, I get a “this computer doesn’t have Vt-X/AMd-v enabled” message

Within the VSphere client I have set the CPU/MMU Virtualization to “Use Intel Vt-x/AMD-v for instruction set virtualization”, however still get the error.

Has anyone had experience with Docker and VMware?

Thank You

You will most likely want to install docker toolbox in this case not docker for windows - http://xibo.org.uk/manual/en/install_docker_winother_64bit.html

Once you have docker environment (before you run docker-compose up), please see http://xibo.org.uk/manual/en/upgrade_switch_to_docker.html

ok, thank you Peter, I’ll give it a go

There are people on here who have reported success with Docker on VMWare-hosted VMs, so it may work for you.

Otherwise, a Linux based VM will definitely work, and removes the double-virtualisation issue that you’re currently seeing.
