Docker Compose Fails with Network Has Active Endpoints Error
docker compose down on a docker compose stack, I came across this error:
has active endpoints
Now if I listed the docker networks with:
docker network ls
I could see the offending network listed:
NETWORK ID NAME DRIVER SCOPE 2222a222222a <OFFENDING NETWORK NAME> bridge local
Now I could probably fix this by removing the offending network with:
docker network rm <OFFENDING NETWORK NAME>
A quick Google pointed me in the right direction to get things working as expected. The network I was trying to remove was being used by an orphaned container.
Running the following fixed the issue:
docker compose down --remove-orphans
This can occur if you run
docker run or equivalent without the
--rm parameter, where container is not removed after the command exits.
