Trying to figure our correct volume mapping

  • Running Sonarr 3.0.4.1060 using docker (Linuxserver image)
  • Download client: qBitorrent 4.3.2 using docker
  • Both running on the same host
  • OS: OMV (on a PI 4)

Hello everyone,

I am struggling setting up the correct path in Sonarr. I read the wiki + some reddit threads and threads on the forum but I am still not sure what would be the correct volume path I should use in both qBitorrent container and Sonarr V3 container.

Below is the tree folder I would like to get :

Files would be downloaded to /data/torrents/ and incomplete to /data/torrents/temporary/.

Once completed, the files would be moved to /data/media/tv/.

So, if I understand well, in my qBitorrent docker compose, I would use the following path :

  • /srv/dev-disk-by-label-mediadisk/config/qbitorrent:/config
  • /srv/dev-disk-by-label-mediadisk/data/torrents:/data/torrents

And in sonarr docker compose, I would set the following:

  • /srv/dev-disk-by-label-mediadisk/config/sonarr:/config
  • /srv/dev-disk-by-label-mediadisk/data:/data

I have then several questions:

  1. Is this mapping correct? Is there any volume that need to be mounted or changed?
  2. Should I create the folders (the ones in data) before creating the containers?
  3. What should I use as a root folder in Sonarr when adding a tv show, so it can go directly to that folder once downloaded ? “/media/tv/”? or just “/media/”?
  4. Should I change the download path in qBitorrent to /data/torrents/ ?
  5. Will I need to configure a remote path/local path in Sonarr?

Thank you for your help!

  1. Looks fine
  2. Yes
  3. /media/tv
  4. Yes
  5. No

Thank you, I will try this on the weekend and let you know !

Got the time to set up everything and it works like a charm :slightly_smiling_face:
Thanks for your help !
Edit : just had to change the root folder in Sonarr to /data/media/tv/
