  2. Before docker pull, login to docker hub with your username and password.

Practical example how to login to docker hub

[root@localhost ~]# docker login --username=my_docker_username
WARNING! Your password will be stored unencrypted in /root/.docker/config.json.
Configure a credential helper to remove this warning. See
