Troubleshooting

StorageOs plugin not found

Issue:

Docker logs indicate that it cannot find StorageOS plugin, even though the StorageOS container is running.

Reason:

Docker Swarm installations don’t identify plugins that are registered as containers, rather than docker plugins. Therefore some swarm installations don’t load plugins as expected. Docker use lazy loading for those plugins that start as containers. StorageOS creates a socket for which Docker can communicate to the storage engine and provision volumes.

Solution:

Run a docker cli command related to a volume in order to trigger Docker’s lazy plugin evaluation.

docker volume ls
