So, basically, I have a docker container running and i have mounted a host file-system inside the container so that the processes inside can have access to its files. The running process inside the docker container requires the files in the mounted file-system to be its ownership but they have a different owner (my host user). Whenever i try to change the ownership from my host to that of the container, chown reports an invalid user error.
$ sudo chown -R odoo:odoo * chown: invalid user: ‘odoo:odoo’
Is is possible to chown the files from the host using a non-existent user ? Or there's another way how to do things ?
By the way, the mounted folder contains additional modules that the process needs. I am developing those modules on my host machine and then testing them directly using docker without having to copy them again.
