Docker Constantly Rebuilding/Refreshing


Recommended Posts

I use binhex-delugevpn as a proxy container for many services. Today I went to add binhex-lidarr to binhex-delugevpn.




1. Downloaded binhex-lidarr and configured the network to none with the extra parameter for the '--net=container:binhex-delugevpn'

2. Started the binhex-lidarr container

3. Realized I forgot to add the port mapping in the binhex-delugevpn container and edited it

4. Added 8686-8686 TCP port mapping to binhex-delugevpn and rebuilt it

5. This is where everything went sideways. Generally an update to binhex-delugevpn would cause all the containers the routed though it to rebuild. This time they didn't - they all said rebuild ready rebuilding and did nothing. My GUI was freaking out - the auto start icons were flashing and the resource usage counters were flashing and the unRAID refresh logo was popping in and out every 2-3 seconds.


At this point I couldn't select anything on the screen because by the time I could click it would reload/refresh. So I did the following:

1. From the dashboard screen stopped all the containers - didn't fix anything

2. Slowly disabled all the auto-starts by timing my clicks

3. Stopped and restarted the Docker service from settings - no change

4. No obvious errors/issues in the logs


Even with all my containers stopped the Docker GUI is not working? I deleted the binhex-lidarr container and removed the port mapping from binhex-delugevpn. Still nothing. I have somehow managed to screw everything. What is interesting is if I start the containers from the Dashboard page they work fine, but if I go to the Docker page in the GUI it is unusable.

Well I am not sure what I did, but I have 2 versions of the same container. One goes through binhex-delugevpn and the other doesn't. Somehow they got messed up. As soon as I deleted both of those everything was peachy. 


Strange. Probably screwed something up awhile back setting them up and not getting the appdata folders unique. Once it required a rebuild it broke everything as I haven't rebuilt the containers in months.
