I was wondering if there is a way to leverage a third party backup tool that is able to easily do scheduled incremental ZFS send/receives of LXD root filesystem datasets.
I have tested this with lxd and I had delete the destination zfs dataset for the container but then managed to do a syncoid zfs send/receive to the deleted dataset (from the source host).
LXD then successfully launches the newly copied container, but it seems it’s database knowledge of the container is lost in that you can no longer do “lxc copy” or “lxc move” It just hangs there and does nothing. I think its making a query to the database and its not returning any data.
Is anyone else managing to do this sort of replication between dispersed LXD hosts successfully ?
