We are going to test that Docker daemon starts successfully.


Test this on Atomic image and Base image.

How to test

Be as specific as required for the target audience.

  1. ssh into an Atomic/Cloud instance.
  2. If it is a cloud base image then install docker
$ sudo dnf install docker -y

3. Next we will start docker deamon. (No need on an Atomic instance)

 $ systemctl start docker.service

4. Check the status of the docker service

$ systemctl status docker.service

Expected Results

The following must be true to consider this a successful test run.

  1. Step #1 You will be able to login into an instance.
  2. Step #2 will install docker.
  3. Step #3 will start docker.
  4. Step #4 will return like this:
 $ systemctl status docker.service
