Stock images with Docker


Acodring to both the official docmuentation and the email about bamboo 5.8, the amazon/ubuntu stock images should now have Docker capabilities, however the stock AMIs that I see in my account (ami-949bd6fc/ami-1c247d74) doesn't have them and the windows version is still 2008. 


Is there something that I can do in order to get the new images?

You have to add the capability manually - Docker is installed but for technical reasons we did not add the capabilities to people's accounts.

Note that Docker is only available on 64bit Linux (Amazon/Ubuntu) images.

Great! too bad it is not documented anywhere...

Isn't ami-949bd6fc the 64bit Amazon image? I still can't find Docker installed on it.

Docker doesn't work at Windows without separate VM, so Windows images doesn't have docker capabilities, try to use Ubuntu based images

Could you upgrade the Ubuntu image to the latest Docker version? Currently it's 1.5 whereas the latest one is 1.7...

Hi Oliver did you find the way to update Docker on Ubuntu image, I am able to build a new image with Docker task but I am not able to push it to Docker hub, I read that I need to have the last version of Docket because old version has incompatibility with Docker hub

@Francisco Montada Yes - do the following:

  • Disable image termination in AWS for the running Bamboo instance
  • Update Docker 
  • Stop Bamboo  Image from Bamboo -> Image should now be stopped but not terminated!
  • Detach any additionally (to root EBS) mounted EBS
  • Create new Image from this instance (should contain only the root volume). Automatically also a snapshot is created from root EBS.
  • Use this image ID (+ any mounted EBS volume) as basis for a new Bamboo instance

hi Oliver thanks to reply sorry I did not understand your the step I did this curl -sSL | sh and also did not work could you help us ? thanks Francisco

I did it exactly accordingly to the official guide and it worked.Perhaps a clean uninstall could help?

Hi Oliver could send me link on the guide that you used Thanks Fracisco

@Francisco Montada I too was having issues with docker remaining version 1.5 when that is no longer supported for docker hub. My solution was to add this to the ubuntu image startup script #!/bin/bash usermod -a -G docker ec2-user sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install docker version was updated and i seem to be able to push again.
