Upgrade Notes

LXD Storage Pool

Newer lxd versions (>=2.9) require the configuration of a storage pool. edi (>=0.6.0) ships with a plugin for a default storage pool. You can add the following lines to the lxc_profiles section of your existing configuration if you want to upgrade to a newer version of lxd:



{% if edi_lxd_version is defined and (edi_lxd_version.split('.')[0] | int >= 3 or edi_lxd_version.split('.')[1] | int >= 9) %}
    path: lxc_profiles/general/default_root_device/default_root_device.yml
{% endif %}


Please note that newly created configurations will already contain this conditional inclusion of the storage pool definition. If the above configuration is missing, edi lxc configure ... will print an error message:

$ sudo edi -v lxc configure my-project my-project-test.yml
Going to launch container.

Error: Launching image 'my-project-test_edicommand_lxc_import' failed with the following message:
error: No root device could be found.

On Ubuntu 16.04 the following command can be used to upgrade the lxd installation:

sudo apt install lxd/xenial-backports lxd-client/xenial-backports

Distributions Using nftables Instead of iptables

On distributions that are using nftables instead of iptables you might end up with the following error message:

$ sudo edi -v image create pi4-buster-arm64.yml

For more information increase the log level.

The root cause is that the container is not able to get an IPv4 address assigned. To get the issue fixed, please attach the container to edibr0 instead of lxdbr0 according to this description. The new setup requires an edi version that is greater or equal 1.6.0.
