Docker for Windows was not running. So as first step need to make MobyLinuxVM execute in Hyper-V. Hyper-V although running all virtual machines successfully but could not connect to them itself with double errors.

It poses error #1 on first connect thereafter error #2. What to do now, have tried many solution as mentioned below ?

Error #1:

First Error

Error #2:

Failed Solutions

Have tried following but failed {Windows 10 (x64) 1703}

  1. Remove and re-install Hyper-V and 'Docker for Windows'
  2. Disabled all firewalls and antivirus on the machine
  3. Failed to connect 'docker for windows' with hyper-v (Stopped docker service too)
  4. Ensured that flag hypervisorlaunchtype is set into Auto in boot flags
  5. Replaced MobyLinuxVM.vhdx and mobylinux.iso from another working computer in safe mode considering bugs in docker update images (using stable version of docker for windows)

    Apparently it's by design. Even if you could connect to the mobylinuxvm host via the console, you wouldn't be able to login since you don't know the root pw.

Perform the following:

docker run --privileged -it -v /var/run/docker.sock:/var/run/docker.sock jongallant/ubuntu-docker-client 
docker run --net=host --ipc=host --uts=host --pid=host -it --security-opt=seccomp=unconfined --privileged --rm -v /:/host alpine /bin/sh
chroot /host

Now you are in, ls the file system.

If you find a better way let me know.

I had a similar problem recently. Only way to fix it was to manually remove VMs in the directory of Hyper-V. The details are in my question How to restore failing Docker
