Hi everyone,

I have a little problem with my container here

I explain :

My image is built from github directly thanks t the Dockerfile :

FROM ubuntu

RUN apt-get update \
	&& apt-get install -y bind9 \
	&& apt-get install -y dnsutils \
	&& apt-get install -y vim 

ADD /etc/bind/
ADD /etc/bind/
ADD /etc/bind/
ADD /etc/bind/

WORKDIR /etc/bind

VOLUME /etc/bind

EXPOSE 53/udp 53/tcp

CMD ["usr/sbin/named"] 

And when i Run it to get the container with this command :

sudo docker run -d -p 53:53 --name=latestBindv1 adminprojet/admin_projet_repo:latest

“latest” because the build created is named “latest” on my dockerhub,

I get this error message in the “docker logs container” :

I already tried by writing “RUN chmod /etc/bind/*” in the Dockerfile AND with “–privileged” clause but nothing change.

If anyone could help me plsease…


Is there any update on this?
