On aarch64 system.When I try to start the container, I get an error: "exit status 17"

How can i fix it?thx!!!

Can you share the exact docker run command and the error logs it produces?

It appears that you are not using an official docker package from docker’s repositories.


docker run -itd --privileged=true --restart=always -e TZ=Asia/Shanghai --name myredis -p 6379:6379 redis:6.0
docker: Error response from daemon: OCI runtime create failed: container_linux.go:318: starting container process caused “process_linux.go:267: running exec setns process for init caused "exit status 17"”: unknown.

The image is manually imported, and no matter what container I run, the error is the same. It looks like a directory permission issue, but I cannot determine the specific location

How did you export and manually import the image?
When you exported the image, how did you make sure that the exported image actually was for the cpu architecture of your target system?

I would strongly suggest asking in a forum of the maintainer of the docker package you use - they are the ones to provide support for their package. We can not know how weather and how they modified their docker package, or whether the host kernel provides all required kernel modules to work properly.

These image packages are designed for the aarch64 architecture and I have tested them on other servers to be usable. Regarding the error ‘exit status 17’, the information I found is related to the file system, but I cannot find the specific error information. How can I provide more debugging information?

I am not aware of anything appart from journalctl -u docker and container logs. Usually the container logs are enough to understand what’s going on.

Though, In your situation both have not been really helpful to narrow down the problem.

You could run the preflight check to verify whether required kernel modules are missing:

curl -L https://github.com/moby/moby/raw/master/contrib/check-config.sh | sh

You should really ask the maintainer of the package for help, as it’s more likely they know the operation environment they made their package for.

I hope you’ll find what causes the problem and be able to fix it.
Thus said, I am bailing out of the discussion, as I have nothing more to contribute.
