LCOW guide for windows server 2019

Copper Contributor

Hello Ppl,

I have been trying to use linux container on windows (2019 server). I have found any straight forward guide which would direct me how to use this feature on windows 2019 server.

I think in the announcement it was mentioned windows 2019 server would be able to run Linux containers.

I have tried to use both version of Docker EE the standard and preview version.

It will be great help if someone has or know right steps to run LCOW and Windows containers simultanously


Appreciate a repsonse.

LCOW requires Hyper-v isolation. You can check more info here:

Basically, you have to add --isolation=hyperv in the docker run command.
