The device already exists


First, look at below picture.

This vm is a vm created from local ineternal disk and moved to sdcard(128GB).

There are two questions here.

  1. config is taken entire sdcard 1
  2. If I give the command lxc config device override tzfs root size=30GB, I get an error like the title of this article. What do I need to solve?

Thank you.

I’m afraid I don’t understand question 1.

For question 2, you can only use the override command when copying (and modifying) a device from the instance’s profile(s) into its own config. Once it has been copied into its own config you cannot use override again and must use set to modify it.

Dear Tomp

  1. It was a question about the capacity of “config /run/lxd_config/9p”. I have confirmed again that it is separate from the problem that does not work. I’m Sorry.

  2. Thank you. i solved below command
    .# lxc config device set lbg root size=40GB

Thank you.
