[Solved] Syslog full of "unknown container" warnings for existing container


(Chris42too) #1

Hi there,
I am having a lot of log entries in syslog for unknown containers:

dockerd[645]: time="2018-01-22T14:36:47.387239883+01:00" level=warning msg="unknown container" container=65c5ea981f0bd1c136faf23b9d0ec9e8df51065ee8991783ecc701675c8e84c8 module=libcontainerd namespace=plugins.moby

However the container exists and is running.
An clue on how to debug this or get rid of the warning (it is appearing multiple times per second)?
