I'm trying to set up a tezos in docker. I followed this how to from the official tezos documentation.

Because I want to learn how tezos works (especially baking/staking) I will use babylonnet first.

Docker hosts OS is Ubuntu 18.04 with latest HWE enabled.

docker -v
Docker version 19.03.6, build 369ce74a3c
docker-compose -v
docker-compose version 1.22.0, build f46880fe

I downloaded the start script like described in the how to.

After a

./bablyonnet start

the complete docker stack started. I had to wait some hours till chain was in sync. Then i could do some test transactions and so on like described in the how to. Just fine till this point.

Later the day I rebooted the docker host. And worked on a another project. But I had some strange DNS erros during the day. Later I found that my docker host made 227k dns request for host named node. This is caused because not all of the tezos docker conatiners were started after reboot. Especially the babylonnet_node_1 failed to start. Thats why docker tried to request the dns server.

This is how the tezos docker stack looks after ./babylonnet start

docker ps

After reboot some of the containers are missing.

If I do a ./babylonnet stop and start again the docker stack will start properly.

I don't see an error in docker-compose file. What can I do to get this working? Maybe I'm using the wrong docker version?

Also container babylonnet_upgrader_1 stays in status "Restarting" all the time. It seems that the entrypoint has a wrong parameter.

docker logs -f babylonnet_upgrader_1

Current public chain: 2019-09-27T07:43:32Z.
Local chain data: 2019-09-27T07:43:32Z.
tezos-node: unknown command `upgrade'.
Usage: tezos-node COMMAND ...
Try `tezos-node --help' for more information.

Maybe this issue should be discussed in an extra question.

The script you found in the official documentation hides many details that might make it difficult to debug. I personally don't advice to use that script in production.

There are two more ways to setup tezos with docker that are in development.

  • The first one is teztool1 : this is still in beta, and it's going to replace the sh script you tried to use.

  • The second is provisioning a VM via ansible using this playbook associated to this role. Again this is in development, but feedback will be highly appreciated.

I hope this helps.

  • Thx pietro. I tried both ansible and teztool. Ansible how to didn't work well. It is more alpha then beta. Teztool worked so far. I have a working node now. Which also in sync after some hours. Now I try to understand how I can bake some test tezos in babylonnet. I is there a good howto, The one from official docs seems to be outdated too. – Tobi Feb 23 at 22:46
