For some unknown reason, the manager host which gets the command to launch a stack, tries to pile up all the containers on itself; other worker/manager hosts stay unemploed.

Unfortunately there are no log entries for that.

Has anybody observed this behaviour already with Docker CE as well?


I would check that all nodes are active and ready with command

docker node ls


docker swarm leave


docker swarm join \
--token <SWMTKN token> \
<manager private IP>

you may rejoin malfunctioning node.
