Error When Trying to Create Container for Broadsea Webtools


Was wondering if anyone received an error like the following below and what was done to troubleshoot when trying to create the Broadsea docker containers. Did not see a similar error on the web.

@idontknow It looks like Docker can’t map a docker volume to a host machine drive/folder.

The Broadsea Docker compose file references the current directory (where the compose file is located) in the volume mapping so that drive/folder must be visible to Docker.

Are you running Docker on a Windows machine? There’s an option you can use to share the drive (with the Docker virtual machine) in the Windows Docker client.

Thank you @lee_evans. That seems to resolve the error. Since I am new to Docker and these tools, I may have a few more questions.

So I was able to successfully start the containers.

However, I am not able to connect to the web OHDSI Rstudio web interface at: http://your-docker-host-ip-address:8787
The web page returns


For atlas, it says Not Found too.

I do not think the containers are picking up the host ip address either. While we are behind a corporate proxy, I have configured the proxy url in the docker settings.

However, when I run the command docker-compose ps to get the status of the containers, it says they are up, but the ip address is 0 as you can see here:

Also, is it throwing a

file not specified error

since the C:\Docker_Broadsea_Files folder is not the docker home directory? Should these files be placed a directory in the Docker home folder or is something else going on?
