If you were using Boot2Docker previously, you have a pre-existing Docker
boot2docker-vm VM on your local system. To allow Docker Machine to manage this older VM, you must migrate it.
Open a terminal or the Docker CLI on your system.
Type the following command.
$ docker-machine create -d virtualbox --virtualbox-import-boot2docker-vm boot2docker-vm docker-vm
docker-machine command to interact with the migrated VM.
docker-machine subcommands are slightly different than the
boot2docker subcommands. The table below lists the equivalent
docker-machine subcommand and what it does:
