Hello,

I am using Docker version 1.12.0-rc2, build 906eacd, experimental

The problem that i had with docker toolbox, regarding the fact that i cannot create volumes between windows and docker still persists:

an example : docker run -itd --name=nodejs --privileged=true -v c:\Users\xxx:/mnt/shared/ readytalk/nodejs does not map my folder inside docker. I tried many other combinations like :

-v c:/Users/xxx/:/mnt/shared/ , -v /c/Users/xxx/:/mnt/shared/, -v //c/Users/xxx/:/mnt/shared/ I am using PowerShell

Hi @daaps, have you shared the C drive in your settings?

@daaps Have you tried to reset to factory defaults and then re-enable file sharing? Beware that this will wipe out all your containers and images

I have the samme issue. If I look into MobyLinuxVM I can't see the contents of my HDDs..

I tried to reset factory, re-enable the file sharing and reset credentials. But the problem still here.

I'm using Docker 1.12.0-rc2-beta17 (build: 5022).

Installed docker 1.12.0.rc3. I have the same problem :

I have my drives shared :

reseted to factory default, still the same problem.

It may a problem because i have cygwin installed on my computer? It could be a conflict?

I have this same problem running 1.12.0-rc3 build 91e29e8

Cannot seem to get a volume mount to work properly. Also, only my C drive shows up, cannot get network mounts to show up under "Shared Drives"

So I'm having an issue which might be related - Occured on 1.12.0-rc4-beta18 and on 1.12.0-rc4-beta19 on win10 pro with non-admin users (tested on multiple machines, some upgraded from win8.1 and some fresh win10 installs):
Trying to share fails most of the time and shares seem to disappear after reboot of the pc (have to check and then rm all containers - see lower down in the description):

Those german bits mean the resource doesn't exist (Diese freigegebene Ressource existiert nicht.) and the command ran successfully (Der Befehl wurde erfolgreich ausgef�hrt.) respectively (before you have to look it up: Zwischenspeichern Zwischenspeicherung deaktiviert = caching deactivated; Berechtigung = authorization).

Things I've tried:

  • upgrade to the latest version (which btw forgot about the insecure registry settings)
  • restart the VM
  • reset the VM (nuke it completely)
  • use the Admin credentials for the share

Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't - I can't really see where there should be a difference (I didn't do anything but click and apply it again for a couple of times). The only thing that apparently never works is doing it while containers (with or without volumes of the hostsystem mounted) are running.

Instead of
docker run -v c:/Users:/data alpine ls /data

You can use
/c/Users:/data alpine ls /data

It works the same way in my PHPStorm, instead of browsing a local directory I just do /c/Users.........

Hope it helps.

PS: For the cmd in Powershell it was with admin rights

So with 1.12.0-rc4-beta20 (5579) it has the same Problem (but fails to mount the share 100% of the time) - the Log output has changed:

Translations: Das angegebene Netzwerkkennwort ist falsch. wrong network password; C wurde erfolgreich gelöscht. C was successfully removed/deleted..
So it looks like it's able to share (when it isn't) and neither using the boxname (CORVUS) as login domain (login as CORVUS\MYUSER) nor as local admin or with my network credentials..

This is annoying since I'm trying to get my colleagues to work with docker on their local machines of which 100% run Windows (on the positive side: i haven't had any problem whatsoever in months with d4osx)

Like @guybartal since the last update, after a reset of docker it works perfectly... (if you mind I tried with the default driver it works too..)

Ok, so for me the problem it seems it was the fact that the password contained special chars. After i changed my password, worked. At least for now.

@KekSfabrik That's surprising since all our integration tests run on machines with an exclamation mark in the password. I would be really glad to hear your experience if you use another password. Thanks a lot!

I can verify it happens with @ in the password (may also be related to using a live account vs. a local account)

@dgageot
I tried it and while it somehow worked yesterday on the old RC version (even with the !) it doesn't work now with the version it updated me to (1.12.0-beta21 (build: 5971 - 5b59d37)) - neither with nor without the !

[08:40:36.216][Auth           ][Info   ] Storing credentials: MYUSER:***********
[08:40:38.265][Auth           ][Error  ] Failed to retrieve the user's credentials: Der angeforderte Vorgang kann nicht abgeschlossen werden. Dem Computer muss für Delegierungszwecke vertraut werden und das aktuelle Benutzerkonto muss für die Zulassung von Delegationszwecken konfiguriert werden.

Suggests the winbox or my user account isn't configured for delegation (it's a domain login)..
I'll try switching to the stable version and try again

EDIT
Works fine with the stable version 1.12.0-beta21 (build: 5971 - 9cd1dc2) - i haven't changed my password to include special characters again though

@daaps I had problems using $ in the password. I changed the password removing $ and all is working fine. Thanks for the workaround.

I have also problems to mount host volumes without having special characters in my password!?

Resetting had no effect.

I'm having this issue as well, no special characters though unless you count norwegian letters as special (æøå)... Using Docker Version 1.12.1-stable (build:7135) on Windows 10 Enterprise 10.0.14393.

I've experienced this problem too. It seems to manifest if I run Kitematic.

I'm able to map the volume from local to docker, so using alpine image, I can list (ls) the folder I mapped. But all files in the folder mapped is mapped as folders and not files, rendering it useless. Also creating files inside alpine in this folder does not create files on the host.

@andriykrasnychuk the windows platform does not support bind-mounting individual files; that's a limitation of the Windows platform, see; https://docs.docker.com/engine/reference/commandline/run/#/mount-volume--v---read-only

The following examples will fail when using Windows-based containers, as the destination of a volume or bind-mount inside the container must be one of: a non-existing or empty directory; or a drive other than C:. Further, the source of a bind mount must be a local directory, not a file.

@thaJeztah So far I can't see this discussion being at all about mapping individual files, but mapping folders.

@SG5 can you report that issue in the docker for windows issue tracker? Looks like that's something to be addressed there (as the GUI is not part of this repository); https://github.com/docker/for-win/issues

I had the same problem without any special chars in my windows password. But the issues might have started when I changed my password... but I'm not quite sure about that. Resetting credentials in the Docker GUI didn't help, but resetting the Docker GUI to factory defaults did!

I had the same problem with
-v .:/src
the mapping seems work, but when I get into the container, the folder is empty. then I change it to
-v /c/foldername:/src
then it worked.

this is only happening on my clean installed windows 10 with only docker for windows installed, my daily working machine seems work fine. (both of them are VMs running on vmware)

The -v flag expects an absolute path for the host-directory if you're using bind-mounts

I had to restart my docker (Quit Docker, then run it again) in order to view the mounted volumes...

This morning I changed my Windows password and suddenly Docker had problems when mounting volumes (no files inside mounted volumes!). I reset the docker credentials on the shared drives settings page and typed in my new password. Then it worked.

@SG5 If your main windows account doesn't have a password and you don't want to set one, you can simply create another user specially for docker.

I share my experience to work around the issue of the mounting of volume without changing my password, if it can help.

For those who use Docker Toolbox with Windows 10, there may be a solution to get the mount of shared folders, and not have an empty folder and unmounted volume issues with Docker Compose. For Windows 10 Pro with Hyper-V, I don't know if there is an equivalent procedure.

By default, in the VM configuration in Virtualbox, only c:\Users folder is shared to c/Users, And the mounting of folders and volumes work fine if your workspace is in c:\Users (ex c:\Users\John\MyProject). However, if you want to use another folder (ex. d:\www\MyProject), The folder is empty in the container and volumes are not mounted.

To fix the problem, you must change the configuration of the share folders of the VM in Virtualbox, adding the folder to share, and especially keep the same tree, ex. d:\www vers d/www (and not only www).

If you do not keep the tree structure, the mounting of volumes will not work. Bug or not, by changing the config in this way, everything works correctly, and I lost a lot of time for this subtlety.
