Windows Server 2016 – upgrade from tp5 will preserve your files (not supported)

Docker requires windows 10 will not install on windows server 2016

Docker requires windows 10 will not install on windows server 2016

So I am now running Windows Server 2016 on a bunch of physical and virtual servers and have learned that You can upgrade in place from technical preview 5, you will not lose your files. It is not a supported upgrade path, but it works even though the installer says that you will not keep your files, I have installed it over the top of a few virtual machines and no files were deleted in the upgrade. I had a few problems early on, but they were fixed in updates that were installed in the first few days that Windows Server 2016 was available. They had to do with wireless network adapters and some other drivers, but now all of my drivers are installed correctly. I installed the Full server desktop experience version and have been trying to get docker to work, because they said that Docker was integrated with Windows Server 2016, however Docker for Windows only works on Windows 10, it will not install on Windows Server 2016. I remember hearing something about having to run Server Core a few months ago, but I’m not sure if that’s the reason why I can’t get Docker to install on the full server experience. I will be figuring this out as soon as I get some more time. There is one thing that bothers me though, and it is that all of the Windows 10 services are installed on here but Microsoft Edge and the Windows Store is not available, so why have all the extra services that only are necessary for windows store applications. The Downloaded Maps service is unnecessary because there is no Maps app. I would recommend that they either get rid of the extra services that are not needed without having access to Edge and Windows Store apps, or allow the Windows Store apps to be installed since the infrastructure is already in the Server, instead of having all this extra cruft there. I will be installing Server core next, but I hate not being able to get at certain settings that are not available in the server core version.
