How to switch Container OS on Windows Server 2022

New Contributor

I have installed docker on Windows Server 2022 (in Azure VM). Am able to run & build windows based container as per MS article


Further my requirement is to run Linux containers. In above MS article it is stated to use below command to switch between containers. 



 & $Env:ProgramFiles\Docker\Docker\DockerCli.exe -SwitchDaemon




However, when I try to switch between containers OS using above command, it throws error that 'DockerCli.exe' is not recognized as a name of a cmdlet, function, script file, or executable program (see below screen).




How can I get DockerCli.exe?

Is there any other option to switch between containers OS on Windows Server 2022?

Is there a way to get DockerCli.exe as part of docker installation on Windows Server 2022?


Appreciate your help. Thank You.
