Moving a docker container to a new host without dockerhub
I'm getting started using docker for somethings. I needed to move a container from a test machine to a new production home. This is how I did it. If there is a better way, please let me know!
I ran this where the machine was in development:
sudo docker export <container> --output outfile.tar
on the destination machine I did the following:
sudo yum install docker mkdir ~/containers && cd ~/containers scp firstname.lastname@example.org:/path/to/outfile.tar . #import sudo docker import outfile.tar reiners.io/test #run sudo docker run --name imagename -ir reiners.io/test -p 9000:9000 bash --restart always
once you are done with that, you should be able to see your imported image listed:
sudo docker images ls [justin@development images]$ sudo docker images REPOSITORY TAG IMAGE ID CREATED SIZE reiners.io/test latest 92e2e1eab9fe 58 seconds ago 1.13 GB
