Migrating signal desktop from host to container

The signal desktop app does something to identify the host that it is running on. When moving to another host, all one’s messages are no longer available (unless someone can correct me). Being stuck on a specific host is a pain.

Has anyone been successful at migrating from a host to an LXD container for running the signal desktop app? So far I have tried:

  1. keeping the same host name
  2. keeping the same mac addr
  3. exposing the home, username, uid, gid so that it is the same as before
  4. using container rather than VM

It is not clear to me what identifying info signal is using.

Any help/pointers would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks.

Could you give an example on what the signal desktop app is?
