Move docker image between computers


In some scenarios when you don't have access to the Docker registry, or limited or no internet, then this approach can be hepful.

Save image as a tar archive

docker save -o docker-image.tar <image name or ID>

Once you have the tar archive, move it to another machine (on USB, over ssh), and there execute

docker load -i docker-image.tar
docker images | grep <image ID>
docker tag <image ID> <image name:image tag>
