Q. I have deployed Containers to my host but I only have one OS image, how can I get more?
A. When the containers feature is installed in Windows Server 2016 by default it installs a single image depending on the configuration level of the container host and if Hyper-V containers are enabled. For example the following installs the container feature with Hyper-V enabled:
wget -uri https://aka.ms/tp4/Install-ContainerHost -OutFile C:\Install-ContainerHost.ps1
Once installed the images can be viewed using Get-ContainerImage. Only the Nano server image was installed however I also wanted the Server Core image. To install I simply listed the available images then fetched the server core image.
Install-ContainerImage -Name WindowsServerCore
To make the image also available via Docker management I restarted the Docker daemon.
Stop-Service -Name Docker
Start-Service -Name Docker
The images then show via the command:
