I've run into a problem where a selfhosted runner, no longer works with docker commands. 

 

I'm using a Linux runner, and adds docker with the services: docker in the bitbucket pipelines yml. 

 

It worked back in version 1.364

Runner matching labels:
- linux
- self.hosted
Runner name: Stat Migration Runner
Runner labels: statapi, self.hosted, linux
Runner version:
current: 1.364
latest: 1.364
where it uses a build and docker image:
Images used:
build: atlassian/default-image@sha256:5ce8190e86ba11a8e935735ad2059524b020a0a6f652ff4df614353329af0c07
On the newest version 1.371 it doesn't use the docker image:

Runner matching labels:
- linux
- self.hosted
Runner name: Stat Migration Runner
Runner labels: statapi, self.hosted, linux
Runner version:
current: 1.371
latest: 1.371


Images used:
build: atlassian/default-image@sha256:5ce8190e86ba11a8e935735ad2059524b020a0a6f652ff4df614353329af0c07
extract from pipelines yml: (apologies for formatting, not sure how to add code blocks or no-format blocks. )
pipelines:
branches:
'master':
  - step:
name: 'Build and push'
script:
  - docker version
services:
  - docker
  - step:
name: 'Database Migration'
runs-on:
  - self.hosted
  - linux
script:
  - docker version
services:
  - docker

Hi @Kristian Overgaard,

Welcome to the community.

While using the latest version of Linux Docker runners, would it be possible for you to try to use the image docker:dind as your Docker image as a service?

You can add the "definitions:" configuration below to your YAML file above the "pipelines:" config.

definitions:
   services:
      docker:
         image: docker:dind

pipelines:
  branches:
    'master':
          - step:
..........................................

Once done, try to run builds again.
Let me know how it goes.

Regards,
Mark C

@Mark C I took over from Kristian and have changed the config as per your suggestion. I also recreated the runner and now it runs as expected. 

Thanks.

Hi @Mark C 

I am also facing the same problem. But your above solution did not fix the problem for me. I am getting error "The Docker feature is not supported on this self-hosted runner's platform.". The error screenshot is attached below.

Screenshot from 2023-04-16 21-47-20-1.png

 

 

Below is my bitbucket-pipelines.yml

definitions:
services:
docker:
image: docker:dind
pipelines:
default:
- step:
name: 'Step1'
runs-on:
- self.hosted
- linux.shell
script:
- echo "1.This step of pipeline will run on a self hosted runner.";
- docker version
- echo "2.This step of dtf-chain-handler pipeline, has successfully executed.";
services:
- docker

I am facing big challenges of running docker commands from my self-hosted, linux-shell runner. I have been looking for solution for this problem for several days, but I could not get any solution online even not in Atlassian docs. Please provide the solution for this as soon as possible.
Thanks,
Ramesh
