On each server or virtual machine that is to be a system instance, you need to start Docker and keep it running. You can use whatever tools you typically use for keeping services running in your environment.

For example, to run Docker using systemd:

  1. Verify that Docker is running:
    systemctl status docker
  2. If Docker is not running, start the docker service:
    sudo systemctl start docker
  3. (Optional) Configure the Docker service to start automatically when you restart the server or virtual machine:
    sudo systemctl enable docker
