On Premise WIndows Server 2016


#1

Hi,
I want to install Bitwarden on a Windows 2016 Server.
I know there is a Problem with linux based Images and If I want to install it like descriped in the documentation I got an error, that Linux images are not runnig.

But is there a way to host it on a 2016 Server?
Any Ideas?

Thanks

As far as I know, Bitwarden should run fine on Windows.

Have you followed the Windows installation instructions?

Yes and under WIn 10 it works under Server 2016 you have to install Docker Enterprise and if you want to start the bitwarden.ps1 you got Errors that a Linux Image not usable

I am also attempting to install it on Server 2016. I followed their instructions, which are rather simple, but I am also unable to install it. My error is a bit different though:

PS I:\DOCKER> .\bitwarden.ps1 -install
