docker-rm - Remove one or more containers


docker rm [-f|--force] [-l|--link] [-v|--volumes] CONTAINER [CONTAINER...]


docker rm will remove one or more containers from the host node. The container name or ID
can be used. This does not remove images. You cannot remove a running container unless you
use the -f option. To see all containers on a host use the docker ps -a command.


Print usage statement

-f, --force=true|false
Force the removal of a running container (uses SIGKILL). The default is false.

-l, --link=true|false
Remove the specified link and not the underlying container. The default is false.

-v, --volumes=true|false
Remove the volumes associated with the container. The default is false.


Removing a container using its ID

To remove a container using its ID, find either from a docker ps -a command, or use the ID
returned from the docker run command, or retrieve it from a file used to store it using
the docker run --cidfile:

docker rm abebf7571666

Removing a container using the container name

The name of the container can be found using the docker ps -a command. The use that name
as follows:

docker rm hopeful_morse

Removing a container and all associated volumes

$ docker rm -v redis

This command will remove the container and any volumes associated with it. Note that if a
volume was specified with a name, it will not be removed.

$ docker create -v awesome:/foo -v /bar --name hello redis
$ docker rm -v hello

In this example, the volume for /foo will remain in tact, but the volume for /bar will be
removed. The same behavior holds for volumes inherited with --volumes-from.
