Can't execute bash in docker container

  • A+

I'm trying to execute bash in my docker container called "bind" via

docker exec -it bind bash 

I'm getting the following error message:

rpc error: code = 2 desc = oci runtime error: exec failed:  container_linux.go:247: starting container process caused "process_linux.go:110:  decoding init error from pipe caused /"read parent: connection reset by peer/"" 

There's nothing extraordinary in the logs. Restarting docker or the container seemed to have no effect. I also made sure that there's enough space on the hard drive. Starting any other binary in the container yields the same error.

Any help would be appreciated.


It seems to be a bug introduced in a recent update to the docker RPM packages. A temporary workaround is to downgrade all docker packages to a previous release (75 seems to work).

yum downgrade docker-1.13.1-75.git8633870.el7.centos.x86_64 /               docker-client-1.13.1-75.git8633870.el7.centos.x86_64 /               docker-common-1.13.1-75.git8633870.el7.centos.x86_64
