I’m trying to understand how storage is implemented for the Podman container system, but am not getting much satisfaction from the sparse Container documentation.
Specifically, what type of storage implementation is the
set container <name> volume <volumename> [source | destination ] <path>
However, for my application, I’d like to use an actual dedicated/standalone volume storage method, as described in the Docker docs: Use Volumes. With this method, I could create one dedicated (persistent) Volume and reference it in multiple Podman containers.
Going by this this earthly.dev blog post, Docker supports the referencing of a Volume by name (rather than filepath):
docker run --mount source=[volume_name],destination=[path_in_container] [docker_image]
Of course, I could use the equivalent Podman command, however, that would be outside of the VyOS CLI system. As far as I can tell, the VyOS CLI
container only accommodates the bind mount method, as a filepath is required. (Attempts to reference a Volume [created independently using the Podman CLI] by Name fail with error:
source path <volume-name> does not exist!)
Can someone please advise how I can reference an independent/standalone Podman Volume in the VyOS CLI?
It’d be great if there was a
containers tag or
podman tag or suchlike in the Forum, as research on this subject must be sorted out from the Docker Build Container chatter here and elsewhere on the internet.
