Are NVIDIA docker images available publicly ?

I have installed Nvidia Docker v2. I tried pulling the Nvidia PyTorch Image using the instructions available here: http://docs.nvidia.com/deeplearning/dgx/pytorch-release-notes/running.html.

I got the error

docker pull nvcr.io/nvidia/pytorch:17.10
Error response from daemon: Get https://nvcr.io/v2/nvidia/pytorch/manifests/17.10: unauthorized: authentication required

Is this image available openly?

You will need to login before you do the pull. The login is sticky such that you don’t have to do it every time but you will need to login first.

Login to NGC? I’m trying to pull the image to my own computer.

In order to access and use the NGC Deep Learning containers, you must have an NGC account. Only NGC account holders are authorized to run the containers.

When you login to your NGC account for the first time, you will see the Terms of Use (TOU) for the containers. Once you agree to the TOU, you can get your NGC API Key and save it away.

When you are ready to pull the NGC containers to your computer, you first do a ‘docker login nvcr.io’, give the username $oauthtoken and paste in your NGC APIKey as the password. Once you are logged in to nvcr.io, the docker pull command will work.

You can find full documentation on all of these steps at http://docs.nvidia.com/deeplearning/ngc/

How do you login? I made two attempts:

$ docker login nvcr.io
Username: $oauthtoken
Password:
Error response from daemon: Get https://nvcr.io/v2/: received unexpected HTTP status: 500 INTERNAL SERVER ERROR
$ docker login nvcr.io
Username: $oauthtoken
Password:
Error response from daemon: Get https://nvcr.io/v2/: net/http:
request canceled (Client.Timeout exceeded while awaiting headers)

The password is the API token I obtained.

Thanks for reporting this. There was a brief availability issue for some users of nvcr.io earlier today. The issue has been resolved and details are here:
https://ngc.statuspage.io

I also encounter this problem. how do you solved this isuse? (PS:the site https://ngc.statuspage.io can not get linked)

FYI, the login requirement for the PyTorch has been removed so you should be able to pull it without being authenticated.

If I run “docker pull nvcr.io/nvidia/pytorch:18.11-py3” right now, I get about 1/3 of the layers downloaded and then it gives me “unauthorized: authentication required” and the pull stops. I tried twice and it seems to get to a different spot each time; maybe that has to do with threading/sessions.

I don’t know if showing the layers helps, but here it is anyhow:

@shawn.mitchell :

If I run “docker pull nvcr.io/nvidia/pytorch:18.11-py3” right now, I get about 1/3 of the layers downloaded and then it gives me “unauthorized: authentication required” and the pull stops.

This symptom sounds a bit like something I’ve see on other docker registries when a push or a pull is taking a long time – there’s an authorization token that can time out during the pull (or push). I haven’t seen that on nvcr.io myself, though. Can you give us an idea of how much time has elapsed after docker pull starts until the error is returned? time docker pull nvcr.io/nvidia/pytorch:18.11-py3 would probably be sufficient to test that. Also, are you able to tell us where you’re pulling from?

Hello Shawn,

I am encoutering the same issue, here is the output
time sudo docker pull nvcr.io/nvidia/pytorch:18.12-py3

Could you please suggest a work around.

Many thanks,

I’m having trouble pulling your tenrorrt and tensorflow images (similar to this thread)

I login properly (i get “login suceedeed”). But around half of the download i get “authentication required”. It would seem that oauth session expires too early causing log out and interrupting my docker pull.

You no longer need to be logged in to pull tensorrt or tensorflow from nvcr.io.

Can you please follow the suggestion from Cliff Woolley further up this thread and post the output of “time docker pull image:tag” so we can see how much time elapses before the auth fails?

Also please tell us where you are pulling from.

Hi Phil,

when I run “docker pull nvcr.io/nvidia/tensforflow:19.03-py3”, I get an error:
Error response from daemon: Get https://nvcr.io/v2/nvidia/tensforflow/manifests/19.03-py3: unauthorized: authentication required

However, after reading your statement “You no longer need to be logged in to pull tensorrt or tensorflow from nvcr.io” I expected this to run without an error. Am I misunderstanding something or doing something wrong?

Best, Boris

I wonder if perhaps you are logged in with an expired APIKEY?
Try “docker logout nvcr.io” and then run the pull again, and please let me know if that fixes it.

Nope, never logged in. “docker logout nvcr.io” doesn’t help.
I’ve just tried it again on two additional machines:

Ubuntu:
Docker version 18.06.1-ce, build e68fc7a

MacBook Pro:
Docker version 18.09.1, build 4c52b90

In all cases:

$ docker pull nvcr.io/nvidia/tensforflow:19.03-py3
Error response from daemon: Get https://nvcr.io/v2/nvidia/tensforflow/manifests/19.03-py3: unauthorized: authentication required

You misspelled the repository name.

Ha, thank you! Works with the right spelling. Sorry…

Boris,

There is a typo in your command
“docker pull nvcr.io/nvidia/tensforflow:19.03-py3

try “docker pull nvcr.io/nvidia/tensorflow:19.03-py3” instead.
