I have a small LXD server deployed on Ubuntu server 20 with snap-installed LXD 4.0.8 that was working perfectly well, but today started to show some strange behaviour
The configured containers do work just fine, but “lxc copy container1 container2” never finishes. It just sits there and it seems that does nothing.
If I try to ^C it a warning “This operation can’t be cancelled (interrupt two more times to force)” is given
I stopped the process with a double ^C and attempted to reboot the system. My ssh session went down, but the system remained in a pingable but not accessible state for at least 20 minutes and I have to power-cycle it to reboot. So the problem seems to block something in the system.
The reboot didn’t solve anything – same never-ending “lxc copy”. Nothing criminal in the logs either. In fact according to the logs the container was successfully copied, but when I’ve attempted to start it it failed…
Again, the already-created containers are working just fine, I can apply different profiles and all, but for some reason can’t copy…
Did anyone observe something like that and/or knows how to fix this?
