Docker container built in Windows then deployed to a Linux environment

Ledger Nano X - The secure hardware wallet

My development environment is on a Windows machine but my software / application runs on Linux. How do I create, deploy, and run Docker containers?

I tried the following processing and could not get my containers created in Windows to run on Linux.

  • Developed a Python program on a Windows machine
  • Creating a Docker container on Windows
  • Saved the Docker container to the Docker website
  • Pulled the container from the Docker website to a Linux machine

I had to change directions and do the following so I could develop on Windows and run my Docker containers on Linux:

  • Developed a Python program on a Windows machine
  • Saved the Python program to GIT
  • Download/clone the program from GIT to the Linux machine
  • Build the container locally on Linux
  • Then run the container

The second process worked. Hopefully this will help someone else in the future.
