RHEL Engineering is moving the tracking of its product development work on RHEL 6 through RHEL 9 to Red Hat Jira (issues.redhat.com). If you're a Red Hat customer, please continue to file support cases via the Red Hat customer portal. If you're not, please head to the "RHEL project" in Red Hat Jira and file new tickets here. Individual Bugzilla bugs in the statuses "NEW", "ASSIGNED", and "POST" are being migrated throughout September 2023. Bugs of Red Hat partners with an assigned Engineering Partner Manager (EPM) are migrated in late September as per pre-agreed dates. Bugs against components "kernel", "kernel-rt", and "kpatch" are only migrated if still in "NEW" or "ASSIGNED". If you cannot log in to RH Jira, please consult article #7032570. That failing, please send an e-mail to the RH Jira admins at rh-issues@redhat.com to troubleshoot your issue as a user management inquiry. The email creates a ServiceNow ticket with Red Hat. Individual Bugzilla bugs that are migrated will be moved to status "CLOSED", resolution "MIGRATED", and set with "MigratedToJIRA" in "Keywords". The link to the successor Jira issue will be found under "Links", have a little "two-footprint" icon next to it, and direct you to the "RHEL project" in Red Hat Jira (issue links are of type "https://issues.redhat.com/browse/RHEL-XXXX", where "X" is a digit). This same link will be available in a blue banner at the top of the page informing you that that bug has been migrated.

Description Jakub Filak 2018-09-11 20:24:57 UTC
Description of problem:
Folks, I am not sure what I am doing wrong (I don't expect you released a docker build without testing it) but when I publish a port using the parameter "-p SRC:DST" I get the following error:

exec: "docker-proxy": executable file not found in $PATH.

I fixed the problem by the following command:
ln -sf /usr/libexec/docker/docker-proxy-current /usr/libexec/docker/docker-proxy

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. docker run -it --rm -p 80:80 fedora /bin/bash

Actual results:
/usr/bin/docker-current: Error response from daemon: driver failed programming external connectivity on endpoint serene_easley (c52ba532ff76325d404769ea1b867f511d181b63f99b3a85388604deb8585595): exec: "docker-proxy": executable file not found in $PATH.

Expected results:
The container starts.

Additional info:
If I run the command again, I get the following message:
/usr/bin/docker-current: Error response from daemon: driver failed programming external connectivity on endpoint wonderful_goodall (6a1d68ab6e40e3526ddba91378741ff5efa69d25a9bde8748bb362b64942ce4b): Bind for failed: port is already allocated.

Comment 2 Jakub Filak 2018-09-12 12:20:42 UTC
I found the root cause. Someone has created the machine with the file /etc/systemd/system/docker.service.d/lvm.conf which changes the option ExecStart.

Thank you Michal Minar <miminar>!

I apologize for the noise.

Hi Jakub,

How did you resolved the issue, Because i am facing the same issue.

Can you share the steps. You said the issue fixed with the file /etc/systemd/system/docker.service.d/lvm.conf

Since i am not seen any of the filename like you mentioned in my docker system.

Comment 4 Michal Minar 2019-07-24 07:25:22 UTC
Hi ArunRaja,

please check your system for modifications to docker service.
What is your docker version? Where is your docker-proxy binary located? e.g.:

  rpm -ql docker | grep proxy

Does it exist on your system?

  [[ -e $(rpm -ql docker | grep proxy) ]] && echo exists || rpm -V docker

How is your docker daemon launched?

  systemctl show docker.service | grep ExecStart
  ExecStart={ path=/usr/bin/dockerd-current ; argv[]=/usr/bin/dockerd-current --add-runtime docker-runc=/usr/libexec/docker/docker-runc-current --default-runtime=docker-runc --authorization-plugin=rhel-push-plugin --exec-opt native.cgroupdriver=systemd --userland-proxy-path=/usr/libexec/docker/docker-proxy-current --init-path=/usr/libexec/docker/docker-init-current --seccomp-profile=/etc/docker/seccomp.json $OPTIONS $DOCKER_STORAGE_OPTIONS $DOCKER_NETWORK_OPTIONS $ADD_REGISTRY $BLOCK_REGISTRY $INSECURE_REGISTRY $REGISTRIES ; ignore_errors=no ; start_time=[Mon 2019-07-22 13:55:07 UTC] ; stop_time=[n/a] ; pid=25717 ; code=(null) ; status=0/0 }

If your --userland-proxy-path=/usr/libexec/docker/docker-proxy-current param looks different, check your config files related to docker for modifications. E.g.:

  cat /etc/sysconfig/docker*

  ls -l /etc/systemd/system/docker.service.d/

Comment 5 Andrew Wippler 2021-01-27 17:15:53 UTC
I was having the same docker-proxy error message as OP and a google search brought me here. 

In my instance, I overridden the ExecStart to include nvidia-container-runtime. My string did not include the --userland-proxy-path. Once I added it in, the error message went away.
