docker-machine-ipconfig

Allows one to toggle between static and DHCP docker-machine network interface settings.

This is helpful when running a local docker swarm and you need to have your docker machine VMs maintain static IP addresses.

Works for Mac OS x and Cygwin docker clients. Probably works on Linux, but hasn't been tested there yet.

Installation

Place the docker-machine-ipconfig script on your path in whatever manner you see fit.

Usage

Warning: Using this script to modify your machine configuration will stomp on and/or delete an existing /var/lib/boot2docker/bootsync.sh file. There are no checks at the moment to prevent adverse behavior. Use responsibly. Any pull requests to address this are welcome :)

List running docker-machines' ip addresses

$ docker-machine-ipconfig ls
Machine              State    IP Address
------------------------------------------------
discovery-keystore   static   192.168.99.100
fivestars            static   192.168.99.102
loyalty              dhcp     192.168.99.103

Configure machine to use a static IP address

Set the current DHCP-assigned address as the machine's static IP address.

$ docker-machine-ipconfig static loyalty

docker-machine "loyalty" now has a static ip address

One can specify an explicit IP address to override the default implicit value.

$ docker-machine-ipconfig static loyalty 192.168.99.110

Add entries for the static address machines to your /etc/hosts file

$ docker-machine-ipconfig hosts

# /etc/hosts

192.168.99.106       connect
192.168.99.104       websocket

192.168.99.102       fivestars
192.168.99.103       loyalty
