Docker Swarm on Windows Server 2016

You can use Docker Swarm Mode on Windows Server 2016 which requires the overlay network driver. Install patch KB4015217 to add in this functionality.

As part of KB4015217 HNS requires that IPv6 is enabled on Windows container hosts.

Snipped from the KB :

“Improved the Host Network Service (HNS) to support an overlay network driver for use on Windows Server 2016 to connect containers across hosts using Docker Engine in Swarm Mode.”
