If you are getting above error while running the docker commands in Docker Quickstart Terminal then you can have one of the listed problem.
- The docker deamon is not running.
- The docker host machine itself is down.
- Required configuration file is missing.
First check that the host machine is up and the configuration file is present at its location. Once you are sure both the above things are ok, in that case easiest way to get rid of this issue is to open the Docker Quickstart Terminal by selecting “Run as Administrator” . It will take some time to start but let it complete and you should be back in business soon.
