Docker swarm join error response from daemon – How to fix

by | Jul 2, 2021

Stuck with Docker swarm join error response from daemon? We can help you.

At times our customers report to us that they receive this error while using docker swarm/service commands.

Here at Bobcares, we often handle requests from our customers to fix similar errors as a part of our Server Management Services.

Today we will see how our Support Engineers fix this for our customers.

How to fix Docker swarm join error response from daemon

We will see how this error looks like along with the steps that our Support Engineers follow to fix this error.

At times we may notice that all docker swarm/service commands fail to execute, and they return this error.

Following is an example for docker swarm command getting the error message in return:

$ docker swarm join-token manager
Error response from daemon: rpc error: code = 4 desc = context deadline exceeded

However, we may also notice that while executing normal docker commands such as docker ps/docker images, etc., we will not be getting this error.

Cause Analysis from the logs:

Now we will check the logs to see if we can conclude the cause of this error from it.

We can view docker’s log using the following command:

$ sudo tail -f /var/log/messages | grep docker

Note: We must keep in mind that in Linux distributions, the docker log location is inconsistent; the above command is a Redhat’s approach.

Upon checking the logs we will be able to see the following:
