I am an existing user of Minimserver 2 on RPi which performs well, however...

I am experimenting with Docker (Docker version 20.10.8, build 3967b7d provided via an OpenMediaVault NAS device) just to see what I can do with it and a Minimserver installation seemed a good idea as I can compare the Docker installation with the RPi version I know reasonably well.

I am following the instructions from:

From this I can do the following:

root@CMHomeNAS1:~# docker pull minimworld/minimserver:2.0.18
2.0.18: Pulling from minimworld/minimserver
Digest: sha256:ccdd3fa149c5e25c05b54a4e4fca40194a01230614b339b0b8db9a09078d530f
Status: Image is up to date for minimworld/minimserver:2.0.18

I have done this several times hence the image is up to date.

I then move on to:

root@CMHomeNAS1:~# docker create -v /srv/dev-disk-by-label-BigDisk/Music/iTunes/Music:/Music:ro --network host --name minimserver minimserver:2.0.18 -e TZ=Europe/London

Which errors with:

Unable to find image 'minimserver:2.0.18' locally
Error response from daemon: pull access denied for minimserver, repository does not exist or may require 'docker login': denied: requested access to the resource is denied

I cannot get any further with these instructions. What am I doing wrong please ?


I haven't seen this problem myself. My best guess is that there could be some permission or privilege issue with the docker installation on your OpenMediaVault NAS. If you run the docker create command with sudo, does that make any difference? You could also try posting this question to an OpenMediaVault forum as it doesn't seem specifically related to MinimServer.

Thanks for the quick reply. I switched to the Portainer utility, also provided by OpenMediaVault, which is a GUI front end to Docker. I used Portainer to create and configure a container for MinimServer. It worked like a charm and I now have a basic Starter installation of MininServer up and running on my NAS.

Whilst working on this I see I have managed to use up my allocation of Full licenses, is there any way to remove the licenses I don't need when the server they relate to is no longer available ? If you can remove them that would be fine. They are allocated to the same email address as used for this forum post and the licenses I am no longer using are:

Raspbian GNU/Linux 10 2021-05-25 07:58:59 UTC
Raspbian GNU/Linux 9 2021-02-22 17:27:24 UTC


I will contact you by PM in the next day or two about removing these manually.
