I've just started playing around with lxd (host is Ubuntu 16.04, lxc packages are 2.0.8-0ubuntu1~16.04.2, with lxd 2.21-0ubuntu2~16.04.1 installed from xenial backports)
I was curious to see if containers start after host reboot. I've read about the boot.autostart config setting, documented as:
Always start the container when LXD starts (if not set, restore last state)
However, my observation is that if I have more than one container, and all are running, and all have the boot.autostart option unset, then only the last container (alphabetically) will be restarted after a host reboot. The others will not get started.
Is this something others have observed?
Thanks, and be gentle with a n00b
