I have the following issue:

  • Install this Docker Volume Plugin
  • Setup the host with Security Policy with AWS Full Write Access to S3

At this point, I think we should NOT need to provide credentials or anything when running a container in Docker Swarm as a Service.

 docker run -d  -e -v intuit-oicp-ssl-certs:/data/certs stakater/ssl-certs-generator
docker: Error response from daemon: error while mounting volume '/var/lib/docker/plugins/6bf70c8c3fa7932ff7f35d51c831a13f4d1188bfc20f5ec04608844b5e8a5342/rootfs': VolumeDriver.Mount: {"Error":"error executing xcli"}.

Now, what do I do to use this?

The plugins in the hub are not pullable, you must use the docker plugin install command.

Version rexray/s3fs:0.9.1 does not request sufficient privileges in order to function properly. Use 0.9.0 until a newer version is pushed. (Comment updated in order to fix version number).

I am unable to download it:

docker pull rexray/s3fs
