Interesting, but it doesn't help me: I can't rebuild the server, it's in
use, and I yum installed docker from the std. repos. What I see from the
links tells me how to switch storage, not how to manually configure
overlay2 storage, and whether I can do as I said, and point it to an
NFS-mounted location.
