Socket file issue inside docker


(Mitzkia) #1

I have a small Dockerfile and a file. I found an “interesting” issue when I build the Dockerfile. Briefly: inside Dockerfile the creates a socket file, and after it I check the type of the file, if it is a socket or not. First I check it from the file (from where it created), it shows it is a socket. After that I check it again with the same command, but from the Dockerfile and it shows it is a regular file. Can it be a bug, or I miss something? Thanks a lot.
