Can I change a docker container from a self-delete policy to auto-restart?



  • I've got a container started (not my code, not my container, but I often manage the server and deal with the aftermath of it being patched) and I need to make a hot-fix to the deployment strategy, I had gone through the steps to change it to auto-restart, but a coworker noticed that the container was started with --rm. My guess is that this is circumventing any attempt to start it up after reboots (because the container just isn't there any more)

    So is there a way to remove the --rm policy from a running container?



  • You can use a docker update. ( https://docs.docker.com/engine/reference/commandline/update/ ).

    docker update --restart always /.

    Not sure about removing the --rm flag, though
