How do I make LXD reload the nftables rules?

systemctl reload snap.lxd.daemon did not do the trick unfortunately. After restarting after installing lxd and initializing it the rules do not get loaded for some reason, maybe because there is no container yet?

Check your system logs and persistent warnings lxc warning list, but a LXD daemon reload will reinitialise the LXD firewall rules, so perhaps LXD isn’t using nftables (lxc info | grep "firewall:") will show that.

lxc info | grep firewall:
  firewall: nftables

I use pure nftables as ufw installs legacy iptables and it all becomes a big mess, always had a hard time understanding the ufw generated rules.

This is lxc warning list:

Ok, just ran systemctl reload snap.lxd.daemon again after getting the above info and now the lxd inet table is there… Why did it not come up yesterday? Did the server need to ripen over night? :smiley:
