After some more reading, I believe what I am attempting to do is beyond the scope of the standard iris docker images.  I have a different plan to achieve what I need pls disregard this question.  thx. 

interesting, there is an irisuser defined on install.  if I su to irisuser I get the same error. 

I am have a couple of  instances of VA VistA for development that I support for multiple development teams in VA.  The ssh function is to allow users to log into the VistA "interactive menus" interface. I allow ssh as a non root user and part of the .bash_profile I run iris session iris -U db '^ZU'.  this launches the VistA access/verify code login. This has worked with my cache version of a docker image before I upgraded to iris, another version of docker iris (2020) but for some reason this version (2020) is installing different (same dockerfile and docker-compose).  I am afraid to try and re-build the other container for fear this will start happening on that one as well.  

Thanks, I have this as the last line:
that is the same, correct? I will try irisowner. 

I found a way to do it.  you just mount /etc/localtime to the correct file on the host. 

docker run with the above image works. but I cannot build with referenced docker file.  I only have access to cache 2017.1 install.  Could that be the issue? I will see if I can get 2017.2

I followed the directions above and was able to get cache 2017 running in docker.  However, the management portal is not responding. 

http://localhost:9092/csp/sys/UtilHome.csp - Just spins, but
http://localhost:9092/csp/bin/Systems/Module.cxw -  Works and 
http://localhost:9092/csp/sys/gateway_status.cxw =. SUCCESS.

Any suggestions?
