Docker and Windows 10 1709 Patch, The End

So if you read my last post on my challenges with Docker containers running on Windows 10 after the 1709 patch, I thought I was close to solving it once I was granted the admin password to disable and uninstall Sophos Endpoint.

Once I uninstalled Sophos, I noted I ended up with a different line number error.  The question was, has the problem shifted from Sophos to a new issue or is it more complex than just the one application?  We’d already seen that it was complicated, including the Hyper-V with the 1709 patch that was part of the problem.

As I researched the network issue farther, noticed that, although I’d uninstalled Docker and Sophos, there were considerable files leftover and registry entries that had roots throughout the system.  I also became aware of how many changes were cross referencing and sharing the same DLLs.

I’m an expert of scouring Oracle from a Windows server, but there’s nothing like a reminder of the ease of management with Linux and power of an “rm -rf” command vs. the challenges of shared files and registry entries.

In the end, it became apparent that I could be shooting myself in the foot trying to find the trip wire that caused the complex problem that I was experiencing, (along with lacking logging from Docker) as well as the time it was taking to get me back up and running my containers.

At 4pm last night, I decided to backup my files to my external SSD and then reformat my Microsoft Surface Pro 4.  All my licensing is stored for my PC in my account when I simply run a erase and reload the same machine.  I chose to erase all of my data and apps.

Once I reloaded, I chose the following:

  1.  Locked the Windows updates before the 1709 patch and I’m not letting any patches be applied until a new patch comes out that fixes this.  Trust me, after all this research, I know where to look… <br />
