First experience with Docker - not so good


Doing a bit of R&D, I decided to start testing docker on my Windows 10 machine so I can run a docker container with SQL Server and then use it when needed or just trash it and start again. I really like the concept and potentially the ability for different containers for different versions of SQL Server.

The install of docker was easy and painless and changed to use Windows containers.

I have then tried to download and install

- microsoft/mssql-server-windows-developer

- microsoft/mssql-server-windows-express

Both downloaded successfully, but when it tries to "Downloaded newer image" it throws an error message with an error code of (0xc0370109).

After doing some searching, this error is well known, but there doesn't seem to be a fix or workaround.

Disappointing Docker!!
