Updating Docker in Kubernetes for the NSX-T NSX Container Plugin

I recently put on a little Saturday morning hackathon for a friend and figured I’d share a poorly documented NSX-T NSX Container Plugin tip.

The default Ubuntu repositories don’t have the most current version of Docker and the NSX-T NCP requires a very current version of Docker and related packages.

Run the following command as a string (it’s piped, just copy, paste and run) to install the latest version of Docker on you Kubernetes master, then minion nodes. Once you do this, you’ll be able to install the latest version of the NSX-T NSX Container Plugin.

sudo apt install apt-transport-https ca-certificates curl software-properties-commoncurl -fsSL https://download.docker.com/linux/ubuntu/gpg | sudo apt-key add -sudo add-apt-repository "deb [arch=amd64] https://download.docker.com/linux/ubuntu bionic test"sudo apt updatesudo apt install docker-ce

(*reppin’ #NSTAM in containers) 🤘🏻
