I also want to remove all wifi connection programmatically in the container running on my raspberry pi4. I was able to delete the specific connection on host OS with the following commands.
nmcli connection down id “ssid” || true
nmcli connection delete id “ssid” || true
Network manager is installed on host OS, but it is not installed in the container.
What I really want to is delete all wifi connections in my django container.
Here are all settings for django service in docker-compose.yml file
To use nmcli command in the container, I installed Network-manager by the following command.
apt-get update && apt-get install -y network-manager && systemctl mask NetworkManager.service
And I run executed the following command in the container
nmcli connection down id “TP-LINK-REAL3D” || true
nmcli connection delete id “TP-LINK-REAL3D” || true
But I got the following error.
root@raspberrypi:/app# nmcli connection down id “TP-LINK-REAL3D” || true
Error: Could not create NMClient object: Unknown or unsupported transport ‘"unix’ for address ‘“unix:path=/host/run/dbus/system_bus_socket”’.
- Is there any way to run nmcli commands directly in the container without installing network-manger in the container? I think it’s possible by exposing D-bus on host to the container, but I’m not sure yet.
- Even after network manager is installed on the container i still can’t run nmcli command. How can I fix it?
Thanks in advance.
