With the latest flights of Windows 10, we are bringing Hyper-V Containers natively into Windows 10. Developers can use Hyper-V Containers to build amazing cloud applications benefitting from native container capabilities, right in Windows 10.

In this video, Ender Barillas, Program Manager, will show you how to set up Hyper-V, the Containers feature, and Docker in your Windows 10 machine so that you can get started with Hyper-V Containers

Stay tuned on the Containers Channel for more episodes soon!



The Discussion

    Why did you have to launch a separate CMD window to launch container instead of doing from main powershell window you already had open?

    @artisticchee​se, you're right.

    Ender, you can't have users start a task in one shell (powershell) and then complete the task in another shell (Windows command line). I want to automate this process by writing ONE script in either environment.

    I keep getting the following error

    Install-ContainerOSImage : The term 'Install-ContainerOSImage' is not recognized as the name of a
    cmdlet, function, script file, or operable program. Check the spelling of the name, or if a path was
    included, verify that the path is correct and try again.

    I'm signed up for Windows Insider updates now and am subscribed to have those types of updates downloaded but I still don't see "Containers" in my Windows Features list....

    +1 to Norman as well.  I found this useful comment: http://www.busydevelopers.com/article/44081342/%26quot%3BThe+term+'Install-ContainerOSImage'+is+not+recognized+as+the+name+of+a+cmdlet%26quot%3B+on+build+Build+14385

    And did this in PS:
    1) Start-BitsTransfer https://aka.ms/tp5/6b/docker/nanoserver -Destination nanoserver.tar.gz

    2)  wget -uri https://aka.ms/tp5/update-containerhost -Outfile c:\Update-ContainerHost.ps1

    3)  C:\Update-ContainerHost.ps1

    4)  C:\Update-ContainerHost.ps1  (again, b/c the first one failed with a file not found)

    5)  docker load -i nanoserver.tar.gz

    6) docker images

    7) docker tag 3a nanoserver:latest

    8) start cmd

    9) in the command window> docker run -it --isolation=hyperv nanoserver cmd

    Nothing happens, which is, at least, better than a BSOD
