When running
docker-machine create --driver digitalocean --digitalocean-access-token=$DO_TOKEN demo1
I get an error:
Error creating machine: Error running provisioning: Unable to verify the Docker daemon is listening: Maximum number of retries (10) exceeded


  • Hi @lipiss,

    Can you provide the chapter and section, or lab exercise where you found this command with the digitalocean driver? Perhaps it is an outdated version of the exercise?


  • Hello!
    this was at the chapter 6 lab exercise:
    3. How to use docker-machine to create a Docker instance on DigitalOcean and then, connect to it?

  • This is related I suspect
