I’m new here so forgive me if I don’t explain my situation too well. Firstly I’ve really been enjoying LXD via the SNAP packages on my Debian 10 server. It’s been running solid for over a 8 months but yesterday it went sour for me. I
simply rebooted my Debian 10 server as it had been up for sometime (no updates installed before this reboot). Normally the system comes back and I don’t even have to think about it. However on this occasion something nasty happened and I couldn’t get LXC to work. It was trying to bind to the wrong IP address, even though the host server has a static address in interfaces.conf.
After a lot of reading and troubleshooting late into the night I made the decision that lxd or some component was borked and I would have to reinstall. I’ve reinstalled LXD via snap with success but now face an issue importing my existing containers. I have the directory for each container but can’t seem to work out how one imports these.
Any help would be greatly appreciated,
A sysadmin who’s run out of ideas!
