Docker on CentOS 7 machine with XFS filesystem can cause trouble when d_type is not supported

·2 mins
I try to automate almost everything. I use Docker to containerize in-house developed software and run these containers on CentOS 7 machines. When you’re using a modern CentOS 7 version, the XFS filesystems are configured correctly with d_type support activated. But when you want to run Docker containers on an older version of CentOS 7, d_type support could be disabled causing a lot of trouble when you’re chowning and chmoding files in a container: files are not found or skipped, etc.
