Syslog on Windows 10 Home, with a volume?


(David Bliss) #1

Hey all, need a bit of help sorting something out.

I’ve got Docker Toolbox installed on Windows 10 Home (VirtualBox, Docker 1.8.1), and I’m trying to figure out how I can get some logs generated by a Windows program into a Docker container. I want to have syslog process them, and then post the logs in an ElasticSearch/CouchDB setup (again in containers). It looks like the VM isn’t allowed to deal with any directory outside of C:\Users? Is this a “feature” that I’ll need to work around?

Why don’t you use docker for Windows based on Hyper-V. It is running much better.
Anyway it is possible to add shared folders to the virtual box for accessing folders outside Users.

Isn’t Hyper-V the MS tech that’s only supported on Windows 10 Pro, not Windows 10 Home?

Thanks for the link. I’ll have to take a look at it and see if I can get it to work.

Oh sry, never had something lower than pro.
