Looping 'Starting PMS'
Setting up a PMS on a fresh Debian installation, using docker…
Other docker containers are behaving as they should, but the PMS official build (
plexinc/pms-docker) is failing to start. The docker logs show:
—8<— Plex Media Server first run setup complete [cont-init.d] 40-plex-first-run: exited 0. [cont-init.d] 50-plex-update: executing... [cont-init.d] 50-plex-update: exited 0. [cont-init.d] done. [services.d] starting services [services.d] done. Starting Plex Media Server. Starting Plex Media Server.
The last line then repeats indefinitely…
Looking at the PMS log in the config directory it shows nothing obvious to me:
Mar 13, 2018 21:49:42.738 [0x7f9dfa7fe700] INFO - Plex Media Server v184.108.40.20629-6de959918 - ubuntu docker x86_64 - build: linux-ubuntu-x86_64 ubuntu - GMT 00:00 Mar 13, 2018 21:49:42.740 [0x7f9dfa7fe700] INFO - Linux version: 4.9.0-4-amd64 (#1 SMP Debian 4.9.65-3+deb9u1 (2017-12-23)), language: C Mar 13, 2018 21:49:42.740 [0x7f9dfa7fe700] INFO - Processor AMD Phenom(tm) II X6 1100T Processor Mar 13, 2018 21:49:42.740 [0x7f9dfa7fe700] INFO - /usr/lib/plexmediaserver/Plex Media Server
I have tried starting the container as both root and as a docker user (clearing out the config each time), and both behave the same.
I have tried both bridge and host networking, and both behave the same.
Clearly I am doing something wrong, but I can’t currently spot it at all - hints/ideas/pointers all welcome.
Additional system notes:
