A small docker NFS client. Perfect for enabling whatever to NFS, compatible with databases.
This is a Docker image for a light NFS client (~10MB) compatible with database usage. By default NFS 4 is used (but the ENV enable you to change this).
image name aeilers/docker-nfs-client
docker pull aeilers/docker-nfs-client
Docker hub repository: https://hub.docker.com/r/aeilers/docker-nfs-client/
The image is now built from the original Alpine with automated build.
Default NFS type modified to NFS4 for local IT requirements.
The entry script was adapted to be compatible with using this NFS client with database (mariadb, mysql...) and to permit running the container without setting the SERVER and SHARE env parameters, simply to share on the host's network the NFS client capabilities for mounting any NFS shared path on the host (quite useful with small os)
SERVER- the hostname or IP of the NFS server to connect to
SHARE- the NFS shared path to mount
MOUNT_OPTIONS- mount options to mount the NFS share with
FSTYPE- the filesystem type; specify
nfs3for NFSv3, default is
MOUNTPOINT- the mount point for the NFS share within the container (default is /mnt/nfs)
1. Mount your NFS mount-point manually on your host
Run the container
docker run -itd --privileged=true --net=host aeilers/docker-nfs-client
then you can use NFS to mount all your mountpoints on your host
sudo mount -t nfs SERVER_IP:/shared_path /mount_point
2. Mount the mount-point into the nfs-client container
docker run -itd --privileged=true --net=host -e SERVER=nfs_server_ip -e SHARE=shared_path aeilers/docker-nfs-client
It is more convenient to set a volume
Simply add a volume if you need to share the volume with other containers or mount it directly on your host (take care to add the :shared mention on the volume option)
docker run -itd --privileged=true --name nfs --net=host -v /mnt/shared_nfs:/mnt/nfs-1:shared -e SERVER=nfs_server_ip -e SHARE=shared_path aeilers/docker-nfs-client
Then, using the
--volume-from nfs option when running another container will also made available the nfs shared content in this new container
Alternatively if you are not using a "named volume" but a "shared volume" you could also directly mount the host's directory that mounts the nfs in the new container
3. For RancherOS users it is possible to run this nfs-client container at RancherOS startup by adding the nfs service to one of your cloud-config.yml, user-config.yml or enabled service.yml...
i.e: see the file rancheros-cloud-config.yml
You could also use the additional mount syntax adapted to NFS (since you now have a nfs-client started at OS startup).
#cloud-config mounts: - ["SERVER_IP:/shared_path", "/mount_path", "nfs", ""]
