    vRA 8.1 - Docker Application Engine Won't Start

    sprouse94 Lurker

      I am running the vRA 8.1 appliance, after a reboot the appliance seems to not want to start back up.  In the console window I am stuck with the following messages that continue to repeat:


      [OK] Started Generate environment snapshot

      [OK] Reached target Environment snapshot target

      [OK] Stopped target Environment snapshot target


      Then this pops up:


      [****] A start job is running for Docker Application Container Engine (1h 5min 21s / no limit)


      This process just runs and of course the time goes up each time the start job is running message shows up.  I can putty into the appliance and when I try to run any troubleshooting commands such as: kubectl get pods, I get the following error message:


      The connection to the server vra-k8s.local:6443 was refused - did you specify the right host or port?


      Can someone point me in the right direction on what I need to do to kick start the docker engine?
