  1. Perform the Cloudmersive Private Cloud installation but stop after completing the Install Pre-requisites step.

  2. Reboot the server.

  3. Open Administrative Tools and open Services. Select Docker Engine and click on Stop.

  4. Open the location C:\ProgramData\Docker\config and add daemon.json if it does not exist.

  5. Change the contents of daemon.json to be the following:

 "data-root": "D:\\ProgramData\\Docker"

Be sure to change D: as needed. Save and close the file.

  1. In the Services view, select Docker Engine and click on Start.

  2. Complete the remaining steps in the Cloudmersive Private Cloud installation.
