UNC Paths For Docker?

Has anyone solved how to setup UNC paths for Sage inside a docker container?

I've noticed that I cannot playback any of my DVD ISO rips from my new Unraid Docker hosted Sage server as I receive an error that the file system cannot be accessed.

Based on the reading I've done, its because we can't set a UNC path to the ISO file share on the network and then the clients can't read all of the necessary files.

I store all of my iso DVD rips in the \sagemedia\videos folder, the docker is already configured to pick them up from there.

I've set my sage docker to use the host path


Which in the container appears as


I've set Sage to import media from that folder and it finds the ISO's without issue, but I receive an error that it cannot access the file system to playback the DVD ISO. Other files in that location playback just fine, so I know it isn't permissions related etc.

Is there something special about the default path that would make it work? Based on other threads in these forums, a UNC path is required, but maybe that was specific to earlier versions of Sage and is no longer a requirement for Sage 9?

I should also clarify, playing DVD ISO's over my HD200 works, so extenders are OK.

It is when I am running the Sage TV client on a PC that I am unable to playback ISO files.

Use a startup script to unmount standard dir to a UNC mount. I did this so the RecycleBin plugin worked in Unraid. It will on work on network share and not on direct access

sudo umount /var/media
sudo mkdir /var/media
sudo mount -t cifs // /var/media -o guest,file_mode=0777,dir_mode=0777 &
ls /var/media

Thanks for the suggestion!

Would this actually solve the issue though? It's not an issue of getting SageTV server to see the path, its an issue of getting the SageTV PC based clients to see the path.

From the SageTV PC client perspective, won't a umount to a UNC path still just appear as a local path on the server? I need the clients to use the UNC path.
