Docker for Windows: How to use mapped drives as shared drives in docker?


(Dogfive) #1

Windows Server 2016 Linux (alpine) containers Docker Version 18.03.1-ce

I have a windows machine which is on an AD Domain, I’m running linux containers and my docker version is 18.03.1-ce. I’m trying to share my drives with docker which are mapped from another machine that is on the same domain. Let’s call this drive z:/ which has UNC path //MILKYWAY/shared_drive

The mapped network drive does not show up in the shared drives. When I use the -v flag to try and map I get a box asking to share my drive, I type my credentials and then it immediately gives me an error. The full error details are below.

I have searched all over the internet for the individual errors, tried just about every solution. Things I’ve tried:

-unc paths
-drive letter paths
-local accounts vs domain accounts
-some crappy plugins
-passwords with/out special characters

Is it not possible to use mapped drives on Windows with linux containers?
