I am currently running through the guides on https://containers.doc.sitecore.com/docs/ to get more comfortable with the ecosystem that Sitecore provides to run Sitecore 10 on docker. When working on the example "Apply config transformations", things go wrong. It looks like that the CM image isn't working correctly.

After running

docker-compose -f docker-compose.xm1.yml -f docker-compose.xm1.override.yml build solution cm cd

i didn't get any errors, nor when running

docker-compose -f docker-compose.xm1.yml -f docker-compose.xm1.override.yml up -d

But, when I try to access the cm instance, treafik shows the following error:

404 page not found

After checking the running containers, i wasn't able to find the cm-image. Checking the logs for that container, learned me the following:

Stopping service 'w3svc'

Service 'w3svc' has been stopped

APPCMD failed with error code -1072894421

Failed to update IIS configuration [2020-08-07T11:55:01.000Z][LOGMONITOR] INFO: Entrypoint processs exit code: -2147467259

anyone who knows how to get this to work?

Although I didn't find the rootcause, i was able to fix the issue. I first stopped the containers using

docker-compose -f docker-compose.xm1.yml -f docker-compose.xm1.override.yml down

after this shutdown, I cleaned the docker directory using the provided clean.ps1 script in the "custom-images/docker" directory, which wipes the data and deploy directories.

After this step, I did a re-init on the .env file and changed the hostname to something different. After running

docker-compose -f docker-compose.xm1.yml -f docker-compose.xm1.override.yml up -d

the image came up correctly and traefik was able to route me to cm instance.

  • Thanks, this helped! I did not need to change the hostname; just the stop/clean/reinit was enough.
