Using the Odoo Docker I am facing an issue when I try to backup the database manager backup option I got that error. 

Database backup error: Postgres subprocess ('/usr/bin/pg_dump', '--no-owner', '--file=/tmp/tmpqNgSDv/dump.sql', u'gjacques') error 1

I have try it on many Odoo setup and stil get the same error every time

Any hint or do I have to go in my postgres container and pg_dump it my self

Thank you

Well, I am not familiar with type of error. What you can do in order to backup your Database is create directory mount between your docker Container and your local filesystem. Then you can easily backup your Database folder. 

PS: Don' forget to backup your odoo files in the same moment, otherwise you will have problems with consistency. You can mount this directory as well.
