After building a Docker image from a
dockerfile, I see the image was built successfully, but what do I do with it? Shouldn’t i be able to run it as a container?
The specific way to run it depends on whether you gave the image a tag/name or not.
$ docker images REPOSITORY TAG ID CREATED SIZE ubuntu 12.04 8dbd9e392a96 4 months ago 131.5 MB (virtual 131.5 MB)
With a name (let’s use Ubuntu):
$ docker run -i -t ubuntu:12.04 /bin/bash
Without a name, just using the ID:
$ docker run -i -t 8dbd9e392a96 /bin/bash
Please see Docker run reference for more information.
