Spectrum Docker containers stopped with 'exited' status

Upon issuing command:

docker ps -a

Returns this:

Release: Any version of Spectrum


This can be caused by a container being stopped abruptly.

If you were running a container in a bash shell and then control + C or lost connection - this would cause this issue.


To start these containers backup, issue the following command:

docker start $(docker ps -a -q --filter "status=exited")

You will then have to connect to the container and fix the SSdb since the SpectroSERVER stopped ungracefully as well.

Reference "The SpectroSERVER fails to start after restoring the SSdb Database from a known good backup."

Once that is resolved, you can start the SS backup normally.

Reference "How to start SpectroSERVER after running a Docker Container installation?"

Additional Information

A docker container should be treated like any physical or virtual machine.

Be sure to shutdown all Spectrum Applications before shutting down the container.
