"error while creating mount source path '/host_mnt/Users/rainy.days/.docker/run/docker.sock'"

Hello everyone,

I am trying to run some tests with localstack on MacOs but I got the following runtime failures:

Caused by: com.github.dockerjava.api.exception.InternalServerErrorException: Status 500: {“message”:“error while creating mount source path ‘/host_mnt/Users/rainy.days/.docker/run/docker.sock’: mkdir /host_mnt/Users/rainy.days/.docker/run/docker.sock: operation not supported”}

Because of a company policy I had to install docker without admin permissions, and that’s what it’s causing the issue here I think. Is there a way to override the location of /host_mnt/ or any other workaround that will allow me to run localstack?

Thank you

Hi @rainy_days,

Could you add the path in the File share settings as mentioned in Change Docker Desktop settings on Mac | Docker Docs?
