Remove one or more networks
docker network rm NETWORK [NETWORK...]
|docker network||Manage networks|
|docker network connect||Connect a container to a network|
|docker network create||Create a network|
|docker network disconnect||Disconnect a container from a network|
|docker network inspect||Display detailed information on one or more networks|
|docker network ls||List networks|
|docker network prune||Remove all unused networks|
|docker network rm||Remove one or more networks|
Removes one or more networks by name or identifier. To remove a network, you must first disconnect any containers connected to it.
Remove a network
To remove the network named ‘my-network’:
$ docker network rm my-network
Remove multiple networks
To delete multiple networks in a single
docker network rm command, provide
multiple network names or ids. The following example deletes a network with id
3695c422697f and a network named
$ docker network rm 3695c422697f my-network
When you specify multiple networks, the command attempts to delete each in turn. If the deletion of one network fails, the command continues to the next on the list and tries to delete that. The command reports success or failure for each deletion.
