    • Can't ping plex.tv, can not sign in to server

      I just did a fresh OMV 4 installation and all seemed to be working fine. However, trying to set up a Plex server in Docker was causing me trouble. I wasn't able to log in successfully to "claim" the server with my Plex account. After playing around for a few minutes, I found that I was also unable to ping plex.tv. However, I was able to ping the five or six other sites that I picked to test. According to status.plex.tv/, there is no outage currently. Any ideas?

      I am using a static IP and my router's IP as my default gateway and DNS server.

      Post your container setup. Are you sure you set up the networking to the container correctly?

      I hope so, I wrote the book on it!

      But seriously, here it is:



      Also, I noticed in the container logs two files that are unable to be accessed due to permissions. I don't know if this has anything to do with it, but can somebody else please check their working container for these entries?

      Source Code

      1. Failed to open /etc/resolv.conf: Permission denied
      2. Failed to read /etc/avahi/services.
      3. Failed to open static hosts file: Permission denied
    • Actually, I seem to have found the solution. I forgot that I had moved the docker base path to a different SSD in an attempt to simplify backup/file manipulation, but this was causing the issue (I'm guessing permissions-based, since all my problems seem to revolve around permissions). Removing this configuration and setting the base path back to /var/lib/ default location resolves my problem.
