Docker mongodb share volume with mac os x

I try to use the mongodb official docker image on mac os x 10.10.2 with this command inside mac terminal :

docker run -v /Users/john/data/db:/data/db -p 27017:27017 mongo --smallfiles

But it exits with this error log :

  • Docker port not exposing on localhost
  • Nexus 3: “Remote Connection Pending…” for docker hub
  • Django and nginx with docker compose - static files are not loaded
  • ElasticBeanstalk Docker, one Container or multiple Containers?
  • How to wait a ResultCallback from DockerClient.waitContainerCmd()?
  • Docker - connection between containers in different hosts within the same overlay network

    What i don’t understand is that if i execute this same command inside docker-machine, with the same data placed inside a docker-machine folder then everything works fine.

    I already tried to chmod -R 777 on the folder but it doesn’t fix the problem.

    Can someone explain what i am doing wrong here ?

    Can we place data inside the “/Users” folder mounted in docker-machine to share with containers on mac os x ?

    Is mongodb requiring something specific about the filesystem ?

  • Docker cannot connect to the host machine
  • how can i restore the plugin data of errbot running in a docker container
  • Running docker with pgadmin on mac getting Error: Unable to initialize GTK+, is DISPLAY set properly?
  • Docker. Does restart container means the same as restart process from CMD instruction?
  • Slow network in Docker container after OpenShift install
  • docker: command not found with Jenkins build and publish plugin on Mac
  • 2 Solutions collect form web for “Docker mongodb share volume with mac os x”

    It seems to be specific to the mongo software and the use of virtualbox , see the mongo docker README.

    WARNING (Windows & OS X): The default Docker setup on Windows and OS X uses a VirtualBox VM to host the Docker daemon. Unfortunately, the mechanism VirtualBox uses to share folders between the host system and the Docker container is not compatible with the memory mapped files used by MongoDB (see vbox bug, and related bug). This means that it is not possible to run a MongoDB container with the data directory mapped to the host.

    It doesn’t behave like that if you keep the datadir out of the mounted volume.

    Running on the docker osx native beta (which uses xhyve rather than VirtualBox), it’s now possible to mount the mongo data directory to the host system properly and without issue.

    My setup: MacBook Pro with El Capitan, Docker native beta Version 1.11.1-beta10 (build: 6662), Docker version 1.11.1, build 5604cbe
