I am running the Docker for Mac (beta) and have  a Galaxy, some what customized 
via the Dockerfile, but otherwise out of the box. The owner in my mac storage 
volume is me and within the docker , root, galaxy, or postgres. I've customized 
the welcome.html and base.css.
root@5017ac030db9:/export# ls -l
total 281
-rw-r--r-- 1 root     root     282334 Jun 20 13:52 base.css
drwxr-xr-x 8 galaxy   galaxy      272 Jun 29 17:50 galaxy-central
drwxr-xr-x 3 postgres postgres    102 Jun  1 20:26 postgresql
drwxr-xr-x 4 galaxy   galaxy      136 Jun 16 15:46 shed_tools
drwxr-xr-x 3 root     root        102 Jun  1 20:26 var
-rw-r--r-- 1 root     root       2543 Jun  1 20:28 welcome.html

And on the Mac

dlapoi01$ ls -l
total 560
-rw-r--r--  1 dlapoi01  staff  282334 Jun 20 09:52 base.css
drwxr-xr-x@ 8 dlapoi01  staff     272 Jun 29 13:50 galaxy-central
drwxr-xr-x@ 3 dlapoi01  staff     102 Jun  1 16:26 postgresql
drwxr-xr-x@ 4 dlapoi01  staff     136 Jun 16 11:46 shed_tools
drwxr-xr-x  3 dlapoi01  staff     102 Jun  1 16:26 var
-rw-r--r--  1 dlapoi01  staff    2543 Jun  1 16:28 welcome.html

So something is at work here. I don't use the —net=HOST but I can connect to 
the ports (:8080) from remote systems.

Subject: [galaxy-dev] Docker for Mac

Dear all I was wondering if anybody has experience running a galaxy production 
server using docker for mac. I know it's beta testing at the moment but since 
the Virtual machine environment gave us such a hard time preserving and 
managing user data etc. I thought I try it anyway...

However, it seems to be not as easy as expected.

after installation of docker I pull the new docker galaxy image with

docker pull quay.io/bgruening/galaxy:16.04

When I start a test container with net=host

docker run -it --net=host quay.io/bgruening/galaxy:16.04)

I am not able to connect to the galaxy web app and get this  error:

Starting ProFTP

proftpd: ERROR (abnormal termination)


==> /home/galaxy/logs/slurmd.log <==

[2016-06-29T08:13:41.440] error: Unable to resolve "moby": Unknown host

[2016-06-29T08:13:41.440] error: Unable to establish control machine address

I then tried to use Kinematik and at least I get the web app running. However, 
I didn't find the option to change the network settings to net=host

And I have the additional problem that I have to assign ownership rights to the 
folders in /export and I get the following error:

chown -R postgres:postgres /postgresql

chown: postgres: illegal group name

I know these are many issues, but maybe one of you has experience with this and 
could provide some help.

Thanks a lot,
