"lxc image list" command output is empty


(Maxim) #1

Hello

I have lxd 3.6 9437 on ubuntu 18.10.
I have 4 containers but lxc image list command is empty.
I can also see in zfs list there is a image in lxd/images directory.

@ritchie:~$ lxc list

Could you please explain why lxc image list command output is empty?

Thanks In advance,

What do you have in /var/snap/lxd/common/lxd/images?


(Maxim) #3

nothing

Ok, so the output is correct, you simply don’t have any image in your local image store.

Not sure why you have a leftover one in your zpool though, can you try (but don’t force it):

  • zfs destroy rpool/srv/lxd/images/9879a79ac2b208c05af769089f0a6c3cbea8529571e056c82e96f1468cd1f610@readonly
  • zfs destroy rpool/srv/lxd/images/9879a79ac2b208c05af769089f0a6c3cbea8529571e056c82e96f1468cd1f610

I cannot do it I’'ll lose my containers I suppose.

root@ritchie:~# zfs destroy rpool/srv/lxd/images/9879a79ac2b208c05af769089f0a6c3cbea8529571e056c82e96f1468cd1f610@readonly

Where is the image the containers were based on?
Why I cannot see it “lxc image list” output ?

Ok, so it’s an expired image that hasn’t been archived properly.

zfs rename rpool/srv/lxd/images/9879a79ac2b208c05af769089f0a6c3cbea8529571e056c82e96f1468cd1f610 rpool/srv/lxd/deleted/images/9879a79ac2b208c05af769089f0a6c3cbea8529571e056c82e96f1468cd1f610 will move it to where it should be.


(Stéphane Graber) #7

The image your containers were created from has expired and has been automatically deleted from the image store. Internally a ZFS version of the image is kept around as deleting that would cause your containers to be deleted (as you noticed above).

The main issue is that the image should have been renamed to deleted/images/SHA256 at the same time it got removed from the database and from /var/snap/lxd/common/lxd/images but clearly that failed somehow at the time.

Thanks a lot for support!!!
