SOLVED - Containers getting permission errors after a certain time

Hello I am new to Docker and I guess Linux also… :slight_smile:

but I’ve so far gotten everything running as I want except for permission errors popping up after a few hours…

I have Plex, Sonarr, Radarr, Transmission, Ombi, Jackett, Portainer and Samba running as containers on a Paspberry 4 (Running Rasbian OS Lite).

Everything works pretty well except after a few hours I start getting permission errors… which I can fix with chmod 777 but only temporarily.

I have an external drive connected to the Pi4 mounted in a volume group and then as a logical volume in the group (/mnt/media) which stores my media and the dockers are (trying) to write/read.

I’m wondering if it has anything to do with how I configured the containers?
Here is how I set up Sonarr and Transmission:

sudo docker create \
  --name=sonarr \
  -e PUID=1000 \
  -e PGID=1000 \
  -e TZ=Europe/London \
  -p ports:ports \
  -v /plexsetup/config/Sonarr:/config \
  -v /mnt/media/TV:/tv \
  -v /mnt/media/downloading:/downloads \
  --restart unless-stopped \
  linuxserver/sonarr
sudo docker create \
  --name=transmission \
  -e PUID=1000 \
  -e PGID=1000 \
  -e TZ=Europe/London \
  -e TRANSMISSION_WEB_HOME=/combustion-release/ \
  -p ports:ports \
  -v /plexsetup/config/Transmission:/config \
  -v /mnt/media/downloading:/downloads \
  -v /mnt/media/torrents:/watch \
  --restart unless-stopped \
  linuxserver/transmission

My fstab entry for the volume:

UUID=*****-**** /mnt/media ext4 defaults,auto,users,rw,nofail 0 0

I have one user which has uid=1000 gid=1000 groups=1000

What could be the issue here?

I seem to have found the problem…

The Samba container was somehow related to this issue. I disabled it and the issue has not reappeared since. I just set up Samba in the Raspberry OS as a replacement.

I did not specify the TZ variable when setting up the Samba container, it might have something to do with it.
