I have seen many times i am not able to stop conatiner

docker stop hashid

Error response from daemon: Cannot stop container 1fdfd212ebb7: no such process
FATA[0000] Error: failed to stop one or more containers

when i do docker ps then it shows

If i try docker kill or docker rm -f

then i get this

Error response from daemon: Could not kill running container, cannot remove - no such process
FATA[0000] Error: failed to remove one or more containers

The only way is to restart docker daemon . i can't do that because my other conatiners are there. i don't want to stop them.

Is there any way to force kill them

  • That's quite common issue, what version of docker are you running? You can try latest binaries from master, may be it was fixed.

  • I was checking this issue on their github page and most of issues with similar symptoms have been fixed already, but I can't guarantee that it won't reproduce.
