Docker Machine

You can provision bare-metal hosts once you have built and installed the docker-machine driver. The binary will be placed in your $PATH directory.

Test that the installation worked by typing in:

$ docker-machine create --driver packet


Pre-reqs: docker-machine and make

  • Install the Golang SDK (at least 1.11 required for modules support)

  • Download the source-code with git clone

  • Build and install the driver:

    $ cd docker-machine-driver-packet
    $ make
    $ sudo make install

Now you will now be able to specify a -driver of packet to docker-machine commands.
