I am trying to mount a directory located on a host from a docker container using sshfs. The problem I am having is that once the golang app finishes executing the mountpoint disappears whereas it suppose to persist (the same steps performed manually are producing persistent results.

The ssh client code:

package main

import (
 //"bytes"
"code.google.com/p/go.crypto/ssh"
//"fmt"
"io"
"log"
"os"
)

var (
server = "172.17.42.1:49155"
username = "root"
password = clientPassword("orobix2013")
)

type clientPassword string

func (p clientPassword) Password(user string) (string, error) {
return string(p), nil
}

type TerminalModes map[uint8]uint32

const (
VINTR = 1
VQUIT = 2
VERASE = 3
VKILL = 4
VEOF = 5
VEOL = 6
VEOL2 = 7
VSTART = 8
VSTOP = 9
VSUSP = 10
VDSUSP = 11
VREPRINT = 12
VWERASE = 13
VLNEXT = 14
VFLUSH = 15
VSWTCH = 16

)

func main() {
// An SSH client is represented with a slete). Currently only
// the "password" authentication method is supported.
//
// To authenticate with the remote server you must pass at least one
// implementation of ClientAuth via the Auth field in ClientConfig.

config := &ssh.ClientConfig{
User: username,
Auth: []ssh.ClientAuth{
// ClientAuthPassword wraps a ClientPassword implementation
// in a type that implements ClientAuth.
ssh.ClientAuthPassword(password),
},
}
client, err := ssh.Dial("tcp", "172.17.42.1:49155", config)
if err != nil {
panic("Failed to dial: " + err.Error())
}

// Each ClientConn can support multiple interactive sessions,
// represented by a Session.
defer client.Close()
// Create a session
session, err := client.NewSession()
if err != nil {
log.Fatalf("unable to create session: %s", err)
}
defer session.Close()
// Set up terminal modes
modes := ssh.TerminalModes{
ECHO: 0, // disable echoing
TTY_OP_ISPEED: 14400, // input speed = 14.4kbaud
TTY_OP_OSPEED: 14400, // output speed = 14.4kbaud
}
// Request pseudo terminal
if err := session.RequestPty("xterm", 80, 40, modes); err != nil {
log.Fatalf("request for pseudo terminal failed: %s", err)
}
//var b bytes.Buffer
//session.Stdout = &bi

stdin, _ := session.StdinPipe()

stdout, _ := session.StdoutPipe()

go io.Copy(os.Stdout, stdout)
go io.Copy(stdin, os.Stdin)
//go io.Copy(os.Stderr, stderr)
if err := session.Run("/bin/bash -c \"sshfs piotr@172.17.42.1:/home/piotr/helloworld/ /mnt -o idmap=user -o reconnect;touch /mnt/ofoo\""); err != nil {
panic("Failed to run: " + err.Error())
}

The container is running in the background (-d) and I ssh into it to confrim that the mountpoint(/mnt/) is still there and this is what I am getting:

root@654b8fa08b9e:~# mount
none on / type aufs (rw,relatime,si=77b99811b9d139a9)

root@654b8fa08b9e:~# cd /mnt/
root@654b8fa08b9e:/mnt# ls
ls: reading directory .: Input/output error
root@654b8fa08b9e:/mnt# 

THe "mount" command shows that the mountpoint is there however when I am trying to access it I am getting: ls: reading directory .: Input/output error

Can someone tell me how I can fix that please? I spend quite a lot of time on this without success, any input is very welcome!
