Stop OTBR Docker
Ctrl+C in the terminal window running OTBR Docker to stop the process
If you are running a simulated RCP, also use
Ctrl+C to stop the processes for
socat and the RCP node itself.
Restart OTBR Docker
Follow the same complete procedure in Run OTBR Docker and Test Connectivity to restart OTBR Docker.
Upon restart, even though OTBR Docker reforms a Thread network using the network credentials you already provided, it does not automatically push the SLAAC addresses needed for internet connectivity and border routing. You must reform the Thread network through the Web GUI to ensure border routing functions are enabled.
If after joining a Thread node to the network it doesn't receive an on-mesh
IPv6 address, factory reset it with the
factoryreset CLI command and
reconfigure it as detailed in Join the second node to the Thread
If you are having problems with OTBR Docker, you might have multiple containers running. Before running OTBR Docker, we recommend cleaning up any extraneous Docker containers, both running and stopped.
Note that there is a difference between Docker images and containers. Images are the source, while containers are instances of the source image. You can have multiple container instances running from the same source Docker image.
To view all stopped and running Docker containers on your machine:
docker ps -aCONTAINER ID IMAGE COMMAND CREATED STATUS PORTS NAMES d09847ad66bf 43e7a898e524 "/app/bord.." 26 hours ago Exited john.smith
To stop and remove a specific Docker container, use the Container ID from the previous command:
docker stop d09847ad66bf
docker rm d09847ad66bf
To stop and remove all Docker containers at once:
docker stop $(docker ps -a -q)
docker rm $(docker ps -a -q)
To view all Docker images:
docker imagesREPOSITORY TAG IMAGE ID CREATED SIZE openthread/otbr latest 98416559dcbd 2 weeks ago 1.15GB
To remove a Docker image, use the Image ID from the previous command. Note that any stopped or running containers based on the image must be removed prior to removing the Docker image.
docker image rm 98416559dcbd
