6.2 slave option for volume setting - what is it and where is it? (SOLVED)

In 6.2, you can modify volume mountings to use the new "slave" option. What is this and how do you do it?

 

I am getting warning from the "fix common plug ins" for CrashPlan and cannot figure out what to do.

 

"Docker application CrashPlan has volumes being passed that are mounted by Unassigned Devices, but they are not mounted with the slave option"

 

"To help with a trouble free experience with this application, you need to pass any volumes mounted with Unassigned Devices using the slave option. Fix it here: Docker"

 

"Fix it here" takes me to the Docker section but I do not know what to do? Thanks!

Edit the container, then edit the path that has the host mounting with the UD mounted path, then change the mode to be either RW,slave or RO,slave depending upon your circumstances

Hi Squid - thanks for helping me. I do not understand what you mean by "UD Path". I attach a screenshot of the docker setup. Can you advise which path to change please? Thanks!

Host path 5 (/mnt/disks) has to be set to slave mode for it to work consistently (Because you're referencing /mnt/disks which is the path that Unassigned Devices uses).  Edit that path and set the mode to be RW,slave

Thank you. I was getting the same error for the Krusader docker. I was staring at the information for the past 2 days trying to figure out what it wanted me to change. Changed /mnt/disks/ to RW Slave (it was RW prior) and the error went away. Sometimes things are as intuitive as some people think they are and we just need a slap on the back of th head.

If I give /mnt to a docker container and I do use traditional /mnt/user AND Unassigned Devices /mnt/disks does it harm to set the Slave option?

The slave setting causes no harm

 Can someone give me an example of what to put in the host 5 field in place of /mnt/disks?  The mount path I'm using is /mnt/disks/SSD . I'm wrestling with the same error.

I found that earlier.  However, it does not have an example of the actual string that needs to be used in the field.  I understand I need to mount it as a slave.  I'm looking for the actual command to use.

You would put in what ever path UD mounted the disk at.  Can't 100% remember if you can just navigate to it via the folder browser drop down.

Ok, now I am confused. I have a external USB which I want to point my motioneye to, and I have read about setting disks to Slave.  and I right that to do this all I have to do is the following

then using the /mnt/cache to

/mnt/disks/share

 

UPDATE:

ok I was being blond.  I found the option after a lot of reading and looking around,

if anyone is trying to find it, I found it by:

  • Click on the Advance Tap, then choosing the Container Path I want to change to RW:SLAVE
  • click on Edit and within here you will see the option to change it.

What does the slave option do? Why use it?
Because under certain circumstancea, a container won't be able to see any files stored within a path (those mounted by the unassigned devices plugin) without the slave mode being enabled

I had about 6 containers that were on the list. I've fixed those, but I don't know how to fix these remaining two.

Tautulli - Host Path 1 has been changed from Read Only to R/O Slave but still having issues.

To fix the appdata config,

 

Settings - Docker - Stop the service. 

Advanced View, enable template authoring mode

Re-start the service

 

Then you can edit the container again, and there will be an EDIT button next the the /config mapping.

Hey Squid I'm still confused on what to change in the actual container. I enabled the template authoring mode.
