Failing to setup bitbucket pipeline runners



I am trying to setup Bitbucket Pipeline Runners in my on premise system. It is under a VPN network. Also, the system is (CentOS Linux release 7.8.2003).

While running the command

docker container run -it -v /tmp:/tmp -v /var/run/docker.sock:/var/run/docker.sock -v /var/lib/docker/containers:/var/lib/docker/containers:ro -e ACCOUNT_UUID={<uuid>} -e REPOSITORY_UUID={<uuid>} -e RUNNER_UUID={<uuid>} -e RUNTIME_PREREQUISITES_ENABLED=true -e OAUTH_CLIENT_ID=<client id> -e OAUTH_CLIENT_SECRET=<secret> -e WORKING_DIRECTORY=/tmp --name <runner name> 


I got the command during the creation of runner


The output of this command is

+ ./
[2022-01-07 10:54:12,880] Runner version: 1.267

Hi @Anas PA,

What version of Docker are you using on this machine? You can check with docker --version command.

I have seen very similar errors reported when the version of Docker used is older than v19.03 that we support.
See here:

Minimum Requirements

  • A 64-Bit Linux instance with at least 8GB of RAM as a host for the runner.
    • More RAM may be required for builds with 2x-Steps or build services.
  • Docker v19.03 and above - Install Docker

If the version of Docker you are running is older than that, can you upgrade it to v19.03 or newer, and then give it another try?

Kind regards,

Thank you for the response.

Docker version is given below.

Docker version 1.13.1, build 7d71120/1.13.1

Hi @Anas PA,

This version of Docker is older than what is needed for Pipelines Runners to work, you need to have Docker version 19.03 and above.

You can take a look at the following documentation:

It includes instructions on how to uninstall older versions of Docker on CentOS, and then install the latest one or a specific version.

You should be able to use Pipelines Runners if your system has a newer version of Docker.

Kind regards,
