Docker EE – UCP 3.1.2 installation failed in Azure

By February 14, 2019 DevOps, Docker No Comments

Docker EE 2.1 is a Containers-as-a-Service (CaaS) platform on-premise or in the cloud. To manage your cluster of containers, Docker EE allows you to install UCP (Universal Control Panel).

When you plan to install the UCP 3.1.2 in Azure, the installation fails during the deployment of the UCP service. You will get the following error message.

[docker@docker-manager000 ~]$ docker logs ucp-reconcile

If you google the error message you will get a lot of answers but almost all of them are not suitable to solve the issue. According to the Docker community, the current issue is related to UCP 3.1.0, 3.1.1, 3.1.2 in certain cases.

The best solution provided by the community is to install a previous version of UCP (3.0.7) and upgrade it from within the UCP dashboard.

Before installing another version of UCP, remove the current installation:

[docker@docker-manager000 ~]$ sudo docker swarm leave --force
[docker@docker-manager000 ~]$ sudo docker stop $(sudo docker ps -aq)
[docker@docker-manager000 ~]$ sudo docker rm $(sudo docker ps -aq) --force
[docker@docker-manager000 ~]$ sudo docker rmi $(sudo docker images -aq) --force
[docker@docker-manager000 ~]$ sudo docker network prune
[docker@docker-manager000 ~]$ sudo docker system prune --force

Re-try the installation with UCP version 3.0.7

[docker@docker-manager000 ~]$ docker container run --rm -it \
>   --name ucp \
>   -v /var/run/docker.sock:/var/run/docker.sock \
>   docker/ucp:3.0.7 install \
>   --host-address \
>   --pod-cidr \
>   --cloud-provider Azure \
>   --interactive
