Docker for Windows Stuck at 'Kubernetes is Starting' After Updating to Version 18.104.22.168 Edge (or Stable): A Guide
Docker for Windows Stuck at “Kubernetes is Starting” After Updating to Version 22.214.171.124 Edge (or Stable): A Guide
Docker has become an indispensable tool for data scientists, providing a consistent environment for developing, testing, and deploying applications. However, you may have encountered a common issue after updating to Docker version 126.96.36.199 Edge (or Stable) on Windows: Docker gets stuck at “Kubernetes is Starting”. This blog post will guide you through the steps to resolve this issue.
Understanding the Issue
Before we dive into the solution, let’s understand the problem. Docker for Windows integrates Kubernetes, allowing users to test their applications in a Kubernetes environment locally. However, after updating to Docker version 188.8.131.52 Edge (or Stable), many users have reported that Docker gets stuck at the “Kubernetes is Starting” stage. This issue can be frustrating and hinder your productivity.
Before we start, ensure you have the following:
- Docker for Windows version 184.108.40.206 Edge (or Stable) installed.
- Administrative privileges on your Windows machine.
- Basic knowledge of Docker and Kubernetes.
Here’s a step-by-step guide to resolve the “Kubernetes is Starting” issue.
Step 1: Reset Kubernetes Cluster
The first step is to reset your Kubernetes cluster. Navigate to Docker settings, select the “Kubernetes” tab, and click on “Reset Kubernetes Cluster”. This action will delete the existing cluster and create a new one.
Docker Settings > Kubernetes > Reset Kubernetes Cluster
Step 2: Clean Docker Desktop Data
If resetting the Kubernetes cluster doesn’t resolve the issue, try cleaning Docker Desktop data. Be aware that this action will remove all your images, containers, and networks.
Docker Settings > Troubleshoot > Clean / Purge data
Step 3: Reinstall Docker
If the issue persists, reinstall Docker. Uninstall Docker from your machine, download the latest version from the Docker website, and install it.
Control Panel > Programs > Uninstall a program > Docker Desktop > Uninstall
Step 4: Check System Resources
Ensure your system has enough resources to run Docker and Kubernetes. Docker for Windows requires a minimum of 4GB of RAM and 4 CPU cores. You can adjust these settings in Docker’s “Resources” tab.
Docker Settings > Resources
The “Kubernetes is Starting” issue in Docker for Windows version 220.127.116.11 Edge (or Stable) can be resolved by resetting the Kubernetes cluster, cleaning Docker Desktop data, reinstalling Docker, and ensuring your system has enough resources.
Remember, Docker and Kubernetes are powerful tools for data scientists, but they can sometimes present challenges. Don’t let these hurdles deter you. With a bit of troubleshooting, you can overcome these issues and continue to harness the power of Docker and Kubernetes for your data science projects.
