Not able to pull certain images from DockerHub? (Azure Container Instances) RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi, I am trying to use an open Docker image (https://hub.docker.com/r/nbcuniversalpaint/drupal), however that fails.

    What I have done:

    az container create --name tangobravo --image nbcuniversalpaint/drupal --resource-group shortlived --ip-address public

    That thing remains in provisioningState "Creating" for quite some time with errors like this:

    { "count": 53, "firstTimestamp": "2017-08-13T19:09:32+00:00", "lastTimestamp": "2017-08-13T19:22:32+00:00", "message": "BackOff: Back-off pulling image \"nbcuniversalpaint/drupal\"", "type": "Normal" }

    So it seems trying to pull the image but it does not work for some reason?

    If I try the same thing with the image microsoft/aci-helloworld it would work just fine.

    There seems to be a general issue as docker pull does not work either, see:


    So I am at a loss here, what is causing the trouble? How should one deal with these type of errors? It seems all images are in the same repository and both are public so why come one can be obtained and the other one not.

    Thanks for any help.

  • This is more an issue with the Docker image and not with Azure Storage. I suggest you follow-up with Docker using the same link that you mentioned. Also, if you have any technical questions/issues with Azure Container Instances you can submit them to our GitHub issues page or on StackOverflow .
