    Hello, I am trying to start NX server inside the docker container, how it is described in https://knowledgebase.nomachine.com/DT11R00194 article.
    But I have an error during connection to NX-server. There are Docker logs:

    NX> 111 New connections to NoMachine server are enabled.
    NX> 161 Enabled service: nxserver.
    NX> 162 WARNING: Cannot find X servers running on this machine.
    NX> 162 WARNING: A new virtual display will be created on demand.
    NX> 161 Enabled service: nxd.

    Support team, could you provide some information related to error?

    I’ve created repo with demo: https://github.com/slyder/nomachine-in-docker

    Hi k.gorbachev,

    It looks like this is related to AppArmor. Please take a look at Section 2 -Troubleshooting in this article where we explain how to fix it:  https://knowledgebase.nomachine.com/DT11R00194

    @Carin, I’ve checked this article before posting message.

    1 I’m using Dockerfile from yours example and it uses debian:buster, not ubuntu which as i understand could have app-armor problem

    2 Anyway, i tried to setup app-armor as described in documentation:
    root@d8943e1ba353:# apt-get install apparmor-utils
    root@d8943e1ba353:# aa-complain /etc/apparmor.d/docker
    Profile for /etc/apparmor.d/docker not found, skipping
    should i run it on HOST system? I’ve checked system logs and i unable to find any related to permissions logs

    3 I’ve checked NoMachine logs and see “Error: Cannot create a new display, please contact your system administrator'”, but why this is happening?

    4. is there any tutorial how i could connect NoManiche to already created x11 screen?

    I have added --cap-add=SYS_PTRACE option and it works now. Thanks!
