My docker containers are running in a local network, called my_local_network. To assure the network exists, every build script starts with:
docker network create --driver bridge my_local_network
This works fine. If the network does not exist, it is created, if not, nothing happens. Except for the error message:
Error response from daemon: network with name my_local_network already exists
Is there a way to tell docker only to create the network if it doesn't exist?
