Docker bootstrap failing: no such name (

(Anton) #1

I’ve tried to remove /var/docker entirely and install it from scratch on the same server following the official documentation.

However, I get this error when running ./launcher bootstrap app

I, [2014-12-01T23:13:32.678329 #38] INFO – : > cd /var/www/discourse && gem update bundler
ERROR: While executing gem … (Gem::RemoteFetcher::UnknownHostError)
no such name (

As a result, bootstrapping fails with the following output:


RuntimeError: cd /var/www/discourse && gem update bundler failed with return #<Process::Status: pid 310 exit 1>
Location of failure: /pups/lib/pups/exec_command.rb:105:in `spawn’
exec failed with the params {“cd”=>"$home", “hook”=>“web”, “cmd”=>[“gem update bundler”, “chown -R discourse $home”]}

Please help.

But where do I put it?

its complicated you would need a hook that amends the hosts file in the container.
