Saturday morning Docker fun times (still only on Windows Server Core) – here is something I found out that might be useful. It is in the Docker documentation but it is not mentioned in the Microsoft container documentation.
Once you have attached to a Docker Container via a CMD console typing exit at the console detatches from the container and Stops it. This is not usually what I want to do. To detatch from the container without stopping it press CTRL+P followed by CTRL+Q.
Note: This only applies to Docker Containers that have been attached to via docker attach or docker run. Windows Server Containers that have been connected to via Enter-PSSession can be exited using the Exit command.
Well that is enough for a Saturday morning.
