Seeing protocol error with ln for mounted volume inside docker

I am mounting volume in docker container and then trying to create a symbolic link for a directory but it gives protocol error. This docker image/container I am running on windows7.

artifacts is mounted in docker with -v option while running the docker.

  • docker run cannot find name flag argument
  • how to modify files in a container using a script
  • Can docker overlay networks bind to a single specific parent network interface?
  • Using two docker files - dev and prod
  • CHMOD in dockerfile for python
  • Docker initiate the connection to archive.ubuntu
  • root@0946d7a3022b:/artifacts# mkdir a
    root@0946d7a3022b:/artifacts# mkdir b
    root@0946d7a3022b:/artifacts# chmod 777 a
    root@0946d7a3022b:/artifacts# chmod 777 b
    root@0946d7a3022b:/artifacts# ln -s b a
    ln: failed to create symbolic link 'a/b': Protocol error
    root@0946d7a3022b:/artifacts# ln -s a b
    ln: failed to create symbolic link 'b/a': Protocol error

    I copied /artifacts to some other folder /testhere and then tried the same thing, it dint give any error.

    root@0946d7a3022b:/testhere# mkdir a
    root@0946d7a3022b:/testhere# mkdir b
    root@0946d7a3022b:/testhere# ln -s a b
    root@0946d7a3022b:/testhere# ln -s b a

    This alternative solution increases overhead of copying mounted folder to some other folder inside docker container.
    Can someone suggest any solution for this issue?

  • How to download file from docker container?
  • Docker services stops communicating after some time
  • Error accessing host port from docker container on ubuntu
  • clone docker images from local server?
  • How do I give an own ip address to docker for Windows container?
  • kubectl: Connection to server was refused
  • Docker will be the best open platform for developers and sysadmins to build, ship, and run distributed applications.
