Currently running LXD 3.20 installed via snap. I had a power outage and afterwards I couldn’t get lxd to start. My ZFS pools looked healthy but it seemed like LXD was looking for an old storage pool that was no longer there. After fixing that and rebooting it was now complaining about the database not starting. After a bunch of google searches and troubleshooting I finally uninstalled the LXD snap and reinstalled it. The LXD daemon starts again, but I’m not able to import my containers.
I mounted the zfs location of one of my containers.
zfs mount lxd/containers/unifi
It has a mountpoint of /var/snap/lxd/common/lxd/storage-pools/default/containers/unifi
ls -lh in that directory gives
-r-------- 1 root root 2.7K Feb 2 20:54 backup.yaml
-rw-r–r-- 1 root root 1.1K Jun 27 2019 metadata.yaml
drwxr-xr-x 22 root root 22 Jun 27 2019 rootfs
drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 7 Jun 27 2019 templates
However when I run lxd import unifi I get:
Error: The container's directory "/var/snap/lxd/common/lxd/storage-pools/default/containers/unifi" appears to be empty. Please ensure that the container's storage volume is mounted
My best guess is that this is because the snap version of lxd can’t see my mounted zfs dataset inside its namespace, but from all of my google searching I didn’t seem to come across anyone else having this particular issue.
Any help would be much appreciated.
