Error: client and server don't have same version
November 8, 2014
When using Docker through Boot2docker there is a possibility you’ve seen:
Error: client and server don’t have same version (client : X, server: X)
This error occurs because the version of Docker installed on the Boot2docker image and the version of Docker installed on the host machine (your mac) are not the same.
$ docker version Client version: 1.3.0 Client API version: 1.15 Go version (client): go1.3.3 Git commit (client): c78088f OS/Arch (client): darwin/amd64 2014/11/03 13:21:38 Error response from daemon: client and server don't have same version (client : 1.15, server: 1.14)
$ docker build -t my_containers . 2014/11/03 13:13:06 Error: client and server don't have same version (client : 1.15, server: 1.14)
The solution to this error is to update the Boot2docker VM image using the provided CLI.
$ boot2docker stop # stop boot2docker running instances $ boot2docker download # download and install the new VM image $ boot2docker start # start the updated VM
Hope this helps!
