I use an lxc container for running my owncloud that has migrated from Ubuntu 16.04 (and its associated lxc version) to 18.04 and now 20.04 without any issue.
I’ve experimented with snapshots a bit and when I wanted to delete one of the snapshots, I noticed that I’m only able to issue
lxc-* commands, while
lxc delete <container>/<snapshot_name>, for example returns “command not found” and there is no
I started digging and found this issue where Stéphane explains that you need to install “lxd-client”, however this would only show containers managed by an LXD daemon.
As far as I understand it, installing this package would not solve my problem, because the container in question would still not be managed by an LXD daemon. Is that assumption correct?
Is there a way to delete a snapshot without relying on lxd-client (I didn’t dare to play around with lxc-destroy)?
Would you, in general, recommend to migrate the containers to LXD daemon management?
Thanks and kind regards
