Something like #29342 ,but the same problem in the latest docker-ce 17.09.1-ce version.

Steps to reproduce the issue:
1.Build a image use other user, like USER apps
2.Enable docker with live-restore=true
3.Add MountFlags=slave into systemd docker.service configure , restart docker daemon service
4.Run a container with last image
5.Use docker exec to run some command in this container, such as docker exec -it test id. it's ok.
6.Restart docker daemon
7.Run the same command in step 5 again. docker exec -it test id then get failed.

Describe the results you received:

# docker exec -it test id
unable to find user apps: no matching entries in passwd file

Describe the results you expected:

# docker exec -it test id
uid=500(apps) gid=500(apps) groups=500(apps)

Additional information you deem important (e.g. issue happens only occasionally):
According to the #29365 #29459 pull request.
Adds the daemon.Mount during the restore to bring up the container.BaseFS. Can resolve docker exec -u user problem , but not all right.
When docker stop container , will get warning log:

level=warning msg="error locating sandbox id 78e584163857ff32f41b741e9cea89bcac15cbf9ac75843bfb54d64c1dfb7688: sandbox 78e584163857ff32f41b741e9cea89bcac15cbf9ac75843bfb54d64c1dfb7688 not found"
level=warning msg="failed to cleanup ipc mounts:\nfailed to umount /var/lib/docker/containers/a015cba4cb78c224d145df78d7bbd96fff70437f88df310d0708913f645a285f/shm: invalid argument"

Uncomment MountFlags=slave or change to MountFlags=shared also avoid this problem. But then will produce another issue: When docker rm, the container cannot exit. Because container's overlay work directory report device busy,

Same issue on Docker version 17.12.1-ce, build 7390fc6 on centos 7.5

My fix is to stop & start the container. I don't know why but "restart action" does not seem to be doing the same action.

This is expected behavior. You must use shared propagation with live restore.

Note that issues with removal with shared propagation are fixed in 17.12.1 and up.

This is a known issue that can't really be fixed with live restore because the mounts exist in a different mount namespace when using systemd's mount propagation settings.

It is recommended to use shared mount propagation in all cases, but is absolutely necessary for live-restore.

It is likely that this information is missing from the docs.

Hi @cpuguy83, thx for you answer.

I use shared mountflags

systemctl show docker | grep Mount

I think Redhat systeme doesn't support live-restore option :
