Running .NET app in a Docker container RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,
    I try to run my .NET application in an Mono Docker image. I created docker file with the following content:

    FROM mono:latest
    COPY /_build/debug/mydocker :/mydocker
    WORKDIR /mydocker
    ENTRYPOINT [“mono”, “./MyApp.exe”]

    From the Powershell I invoked the following commands:

    PS C:\Users\myUser> docker build .
    PS C:\Users\myUser> docker tag 44ae8b30b2c3 mydocker
    PS C:\Users\myUser> docker run -i -t -p 8000:8000 --name test mydocker

    Listing all docker containers I get the status code “Exited (2)”. I used google to find out the meaning of Status Code 2 and had found the hint, that something failed running my application (MyApp.exe).
    How can I get more informations about the reason?
    How can I get Exceptions or error messages, that where thrown during the start phase?
    Best regards,
