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.
Fails to mount XFS.
Steps to reproduce the behavior
- create an EBS volume formatted with XFS
- try to run a container that mounts this volume
