Is there a way to run docker and virtualbox at the same time? (in windows) Because Docker uses hyperv..

    Just a shot but maybe disable VT-x in the vbox machine?

    It is quite possible to run docker on virtual box on windows.

    @jeanlucami You mean inside a virtual machine of virtualbox?

    Well I'm not sure. Sure the docker host is a VM running in virtual box but wouldn't this be quite the same with hyper-v ?

    I've always had this struggle. At work I've got 2 windows build servers: one for hyper-v/docker and another for vagrant/vbox. On my local when testing with docker I normally spin up a Linux vm in vbox to test.

    So if any one does have an answer, I'd love to know too :)

    I have been to a Meetup a few weeks ago where one said it's not working on windows because of what you said. He's using docker inside a Linux vm with port forwarding

    I have it working in VMware. I guess virtualbox should be able to do it as well
