Registry shown as available in projects but host is not listening on 5005 and project cant connect to it

Am trying to enable registry on my gitlab-ce instance but connection to it is not working, neither there are errors.
My setup is linux server, with gitlab-ce docker container and registry enabled in it(no separate container for registry).

In my gitlab instance, after enabling registry, i see it as enabled. When i go to my project and than - packages and registries/registry it shows me the ways to connect to in, in my case it is:

docker login registry.gitlab2.arma:5005
docker build -t registry.gitlab2.arma:5005/aspen-developers/aspen-server .
docker push registry.gitlab2.arma:5005/aspen-developers/aspen-server

What i dont see, and what i think is problem, is my host listening on that port. I see on linux ports 80, 443 and 22(those ports are coming from gitlab container) but i do not see 5005 or 5050, and i cant telnet to ip-host:port.
But also when i try to connect to repository with docker login registry.gitlab2.arma:5005 i get connection refused. Small not about gitlab, if you try completely imaginary url, e.g. docker login 550.550.550.550 it will not reject but it will ask you for user pass, i find that making debugging even more challenging.

gitlab version is 15.9

what i find problematic is that there is nothing in logs about this refused connection(which i understand since my host is not listening on port 5005 and connection never comes to it), but there is nothing in logs about nginx not starting the registry or reason why it does not listen on that port or anything like that, so i cannot find anywhere what the exact problem is.
I entered container to check it and its not listening on loopback:5005(so i dont see it on host), it just not listening on that port.
I have found nginx conf file for registry and it seams ok.

registry related part of gitlab.rb

what i need is a way to debugg this, since i cannot figure it out by myself.

Hi Belutak,

i am facing the same problem. I have invested a lot of time but so far without a solution

i will make sure to replay you here if i get to solution

Did you expose the 5005 port with docker? If not, then perhaps easier way is have two hostnames, gitlab.mydomain.com and gitlab-registry.mydomain.com so that the nginx proxy can deal with which one is for registry and which one is for normal gitlab commits, etc. Then just access it over port 80 or 443 which you already have exposed.

Otherwise you need to expose the port 5005. You can check that with docker ps or docker container ls. I don’t use docker, but I expect you problem could be because of this, but you would need to provide more detail to be sure.

Please run

docker ps -a

to see the running container, and all of its port mappings. If 0.0.0.0:5005 is missing, this can be the next debug step to verify why docker-compose is not respecting the configuration.

If port 5005 is bound to the host external network, change the debug direction to external observability.

  1. Run nmap to perform a port scan from an external host (the same which executes docker login)
nmap -A registry.gitlab2.arma
  1. Connect to the TLS HTTPS endpoint using openssl s_client to see if the TLS handshake is successful (docker CLI hides some errors).
openssl s_client -connect registry.gitlab2.arma:5005 

Please share the output of all commands in full. If the port is not visible from external, check the host firewall preventing access - iptables, ufw, or anything else. SELinux also comes to mind.

Thank you so much for answering! Am dealing with this since friday :S

docker ps -a

openssl s_client -connect registry.gitlab2.arma:5005

140554093524288:error:0200206F:system library:connect:Connection refused:../crypto/bio/b_sock2.c:110:
140554093524288:error:2008A067:BIO routines:BIO_connect:connect error:../crypto/bio/b_sock2.c:111:
connect:errno=111

ufw is disabled, i did not touch ip tables, apparmor is default and enabled, OS is ubuntu server 20.04

the problem is that registry never starts to listen on port 5005, without any error that i can find in logs.

If port 5005 is bound to the host external network, change the debug direction to external observability

i want us to understand each other completely and this i dont understand 100%. There is no need for registry to be really open for external access(from outside of scope of my local network), but i want it to be accessible from my local network, just like gitlab instance is. My docker-compose file is dealing with that and i think thats ok:

restart: always
  hostname: 'gitlab2.arma'

  environment:
    GITLAB_OMNIBUS_CONFIG: |
      # Add any other gitlab.rb configuration here, each on its own line
      external_url 'https://gitlab2.arma'
      gitlab_rails['gitlab_shell_ssh_port'] = 22
      nginx['redirect_http_to_https'] = false
      nginx['ssl_certificate'] = "/etc/gitlab/ssl/ca.crt"
      nginx['ssl_certificate_key'] = "/etc/gitlab/ssl/ca.key"
      nginx['ssl_dhparam'] = "/etc/gitlab/ssl/dhparams.pem"  

  ports:
    - '443:443'
    - '80:80'
    - '2243:22'
    - '5005:5005'
  volumes:
    - '${GITLAB_HOME}/config:/etc/gitlab'
    - '${GITLAB_HOME}/logs:/var/log/gitlab'
    - '${GITLAB_HOME}/data:/var/opt/gitlab'
    - '${GITLAB_HOME}/config/ssl:/etc/gitlab/ssl'

so i think that problem is in gitlab container itself, that is for some reason, not starting to listen on port 5005

heres nginx conf file that is made inside of container for registry

thank you iwalker!

did you check my docker-compose file? I do expose the ports

Hi,

As you can see despite your docker compose having port 5005, it’s not exposed…the docker ps command shows ports, but not 5005. So there is no way to communicate on this port until it’s opened.

Thanks for providing the outputs. openssl and nmap failed to detect the port because it is not exposed.

I assume that *.arma is your local domain namespace, with IP addresses and network filters that only allow hosts from your internal network to access that host and domain. By “external” I mean external to the GitLab host but local to the environment network.

I cannot reach gitlab2.arma from the internet.

Next steps for debugging

The output from docker ps -a

0.0.0.0:80->80/tcp, :::80->80/tcp, 0.0.0.0:443->443/tcp, :::443->443/tcp, 0.0.0.0:2243->22/tcp, :::2243->22/tcp

provides the next debugging steps

  1. Either the registry service is not started to listen on port 5005
  2. Or docker does not expose the port correctly.

I’d suggest attaching to the running container using docker exec and check things inside the container.

# get the container id
docker ps -a 

docker exec -ti 94f168a8b9df bash 

and follow the troubleshooting docs to check the logs manually inside the container.

One other idea I had while reading the docs - enable the Registry debug server from the docker-compose config, restart docker-compose, exec into the running container again, and run the curl commands to request the debug output from the server.

Search for errors in the log, and verify to redact sensitive information before posting here.

Another idea - maybe port 5005 is already assigned by a stale process/socket, and the registry bails out on start. This should be logged in /var/log/gitlab/registry/current - ${GITLAB_HOME}/logs/registry/current

Try changing the port to 6000 and see if the behaviour changes. If it starts to work - restart Docker, and the host VM to clear out stale sockets. Investigate the startup routines if there are services that bind port 5005.

there are some changes, it seams that you were right about stale sockets i think, because there are changes

docker ps -a

so there are new ports on host, and in docker ps but when i enter gitlab container there is no ports.

if you noticing something bad in conf please correct me if you can. I will try debug steps u sent later. thank you!

I have the same problem, but I’m not running running Gitlab inside Docker, but what is called ‘Installation from source’ in the manual (I’m using the distro packages from Arch to be exact).

The registry definition in gitlab.yml is this:

  registry:
    enabled: true
    host: gitlab.***redacted***
    port: 5050
    # internal address to the registry, will be used by GitLab to directly communicate with API
    api_url: http://localhost:5000/
    key: /etc/httpd/secure/gitlab-registry.ecdsa.key.pem
    path: /srv/***redacted***/gitlab/shared/registry
    issuer: gitlab-***redacted***

Which should be more or less equivalent to what the OP does. So looking at Docker to find the issue might be the wrong track, I guess.

Thanks for sharing. In this case on the host level, I’d suggest changing the debugging strategy to looking for open ports and bindings using the following commands:

netstat -an | grep 5005
netstat -tulpen | grep 5005

lsof -i tcp | grep 5005

ps aux | grep gitlab 

I’m not familiar with ArchLinux packages and their paths, maybe there is a permission issue with folders and socket binding, or firewall in this case.

I had a peek into GitLab - ArchWiki but there is no mention of the registry, except for the config options. The source install uses a different location with gitlab.yml, than the Omnibus package installed in the Docker container. Looking at the options to configure the Puma webserver differently, a socket problem is a good first strategy to debug imho.

Actually that is what I already have been doing :slight_smile:

Nothing is listening on the configured port. The first 3 commands come up empty.

The last one gives this (which looks fine to me):

Gitlab in general works as it should.

About permissions. Not sure what it could be. The logs are not providing any hints in that respect.

There is no LSM (like Apparmor) active, but gitlab-workhorse.service has ProtectSystem=full set.

Binding to TCP ports should still work, filesystem access is severely limited, including for creation on named unix sockets under most paths,

Are there directories workhorse needs to write to for the registry to work?

here u can find how I’ve been able to make the registry work. it actually works, but there some issue trying to browse it from my gitlab registry section
