Docker instantiation failed with error

Generate TFRecords for training dataset

!tao model bpnet dataset_convert
-m ‘train’
-o $DATA_DIR/train
–dataset_spec $DATA_POSE_SPECS_DIR/coco_spec.json

When I was run this command on jupyter ,that error was occured.

Please teach me how to fix this error
I dawnloaded notebooks from here

• Hardware (Xavier)
• Network Type (bpnet)
• TLT Version (Please run “tlt info --verbose” and share “docker_tag” here)
• Training spec file(If have, please share here)
• How to reproduce the issue ? (This is for errors. Please share the command line and the detailed log here.)

Please trigger the docker via dgpu instead.

Sorry I dont have enough knowledge to understand your reply.
Please tell me in detail.

Please trigger the tao docker in dgpu, such as V100, A100, T4, etc.
Jetson devices is not expected to trigger tao docker.

That mean is I can’t run this notebook only my jetson device?

Correct. You can run TAO training with local dgpu machine or cloud dgpu machines.
For running inference, dgpu machines and Jetson devices are all working.

I don’t have local dgpu machine.Does Nvidia offers cloud dgpu machines?
This web site tell me how to use cloud dgpu machines?

Please refer to Running TAO Toolkit in the Cloud - NVIDIA Docs
