Docker Cannot Start: Failed to start Docker Application Container Engine

After the docker on the virtual machine is shut down, it can’t be started. The specific exception is as follows

At startup:

[[email protected] docker]# systemctl start docker
Job for docker.service failed because the control process exited with error code. See "systemctl status docker.service" and "journalctl -xe" for details.

Follow the prompts

[[email protected] docker]# systemctl status docker.service

Here is the exception information. If the error code displayed during the execution of systemctl status docker.service is 125, please continue to look down. Only one same error is found on stack overflow, and it has not been solved.

After several hours, all kinds of schemes on the Internet failed. In the end, I focused on the following two main information points:

1、Process: 2533 ExecStart=/usr/bin/dockerd-current --add-runtime docker-runc=/usr/libexec/docker/docker-runc-current --default-runtime=docker-runc --exec-opt native.cgroupdriver=systemd --userland-proxy-path=/usr/libexec/docker/docker-proxy-current --init-path=/usr/libexec/docker/docker-init-current --seccomp-profile=/etc/docker/seccomp.json $OPTIONS $DOCKER_STORAGE_OPTIONS $DOCKER_NETWORK_OPTIONS $ADD_REGISTRY $BLOCK_REGISTRY $INSECURE_REGISTRY $REGISTRIES (code=exited, status=125)
2、flag provided but not defined: --init-path

The information given here is that init path is not defined. Secondly, the first information lists a series of startup dependencies. It is obvious that there is something wrong with the configuration of my local environment. So my starting point is to copy the corresponding files from an OK node

/Usr/bin/docked current/usr/libexec/docker/docker runc current/usr/libexec/docker/docker proxy current/usr/libexec/docker/docker init current/etc/docker/seccomp.json. After copying to the corresponding directory, docker starts normally.

If not, synchronize the contents of/etc/SYSTEMd/system/docker. Service
during this period, you may need to execute systemctl daemon reload first, and then systemctl restart docker.service.

For some solutions mentioned on the Internet, if some files cannot be found, such as docker.sock, you can execute sudo docker daemon – D.

In addition, we should pay special attention to the fact that many schemes delete the folder/var/lib/docker/but my suggestion is never to do so, otherwise your containers will be destroyed. If you can’t, you can back it up first, and then replace it.
