docker container with empty /etc/resolv.conf file

When running docker container directly (not from openstack), it would bind mount the host machine's /etc/resolv.conf file (in the absence of the --dns=IP_ADDRESS..., --dns-search=DOMAIN..., or --dns-opt=OPTION... options)

But running docker container with openstack using nova-docker, the /etc/resolv.conf file is always empty. Running mount command from the container shows the /etc/resolv.conf file is not bind mounted.

Is there a way for it to get the settings from host machine's /etc/resolv.conf file?

Probably that info is at the dhcp namespace folder:


There are the hosts files and everything related with namespaces.

I can see that in opts file there is a setting for dns-server set properly. but still the booted docker containers have empty /etc/resolv.conf file. I am running compute host on centos 7 distro.
