Mount EBS volume formatted as XFS

Expected behavior

I need to mount EBS volumes formatted with XFS. These volumes were created outside cloudformation so I cannot force them to use EXT4. They’re also very large to I can’t simply convert them to EXT4.

We use rexray and it works very well for EXT4 volumes. However, it cannot mount XFS because there’s no support in the kernel used by Docker for AWS, according to /proc/filesystems.

Actual behavior

Fails to mount XFS.

Additional Information

N/A

Steps to reproduce the behavior

  1. create an EBS volume formatted with XFS
  2. install rexray/ebs
  3. try to run a container that mounts this volume
