Installing the Open Source version on Windows Server 2019


I'm trying to install the free Metabase version on a Windows Server 2019 VM in Microsoft Azure.

I have Docker EE installed but when I try to install the docker Image for Metabase, I get the following error message

docker: image operating system "linux" cannot be used on this platform.

Has anyone been successful to install this on Windows Server 2019 or maybe as an Azure app?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi @kokoness. It seems that you need to enable Linux containers in your Windows Server. Check out this StackOverflow post about the opposite situation:

Hi Luiggi,

Thank you for your response.
I just ended up Running Metabase in a Docker Container as a Web App in Azure.
It was easier that way and don't need to worry about the maintenace.

Was trying to make it work in Windows Server 2019 but I just get never ending issues.
