Solution Verified - Updated -


  • When I try to create a docker image from a tar of a running fuse environment, the docker image occasionally places files from the tar in the root directory of the container instead of the fuse directory.
  • On RHEL 7.4, when loading an image docker moves files from sub-folders to the root filesystem
  • Docker image corruption after docker upgrade


  • Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7
  • docker-1.12.6-61.git85d7426.el7 or older
