Adding on to this as well, I have am having this same issue. Seems to always occur on boot of my Duplicacy docker container. I’m specifying the hostname directly and confirmed through the logs that it is seeing the correct hostname. The only solution is for me to delete the
machine-id files and then restart the container again and let it recreate those files. I’ve noted that the
machine-id it creates each time is different, so I suspect that is probably the issue but am not sure of how to confirm off the top of my head without knowing how exactly it creates the data within the
Given that I’m still evaluating Duplicacy, I’m not wanting to purchase a license just yet, in case that is a solution, but I’m also worried that the issue would persist after the fact given that it seems like the host is being recognized as a different machine each time the container is started.
If there is any information I can provide or tests I can do to help diagnose this, feel free to let me know or send me a message. Thus far I’m very happy with the software and, pending letting my data backup and performing tests with pruning, checking, and restoring, I’m going to be purchasing a license.
