Some really, really nice features coming in 7 that benefit not only Administrators, but End-users as well.
I'm running LXD on a purpose-made ZFS filesystem within a RAIDZ2.
I need to destroy and recreate the RAID but while I can move everything else back and forth between a backup area no problem, I don't know how I'd be able to temporarily relocate the LXD filesystem due to the various mount points.
Is there anything built-in that can assist with this, or anything documented for migration beyond moving the containers to a different system and back?
As I'm selling the server currently housing backups for the data migrated to the Obsidian server, I figured it'd be fine to power down, move the disks to Obsidian and bring up the array there. I'd then backup data from the ZFS array to the MDADM array until such time I find a suitable off-site solution (two different RAID types is more redundant than keeping it all ZFS IMO).
I knew this was OK, as I'd read link after link of people saying it's simple and quick to do so:
On boot, not only did MDADM not find the RAID, two of the disks are now blank. Unpartitioned. Empty. Goodbye RAID5.
Googling found someone else who saw the same outcome:
I don't see a way out of this, so I'm letting it go and will take the loss of months of backups on the chin. I also lost some VMware VMDKs that I hadn't yet migrated, but these were backups after moving entirely to LXD on Obsidian and were purely there just in case.
I wish I could explain what happened here. I haven't yet found anything in the logs.
Well, looks like August 1st will be the day I lose the last remaining piece of functionality I relied on Pushbullet for, so I'll shut the account down.
For what it is, the pro version is far, far too expensive and absolutely not worth it. I wonder how far they'll go before they're a paid-only service and all free users are shut off?
Seems somewhat inevitable and far too easy to blame on "server costs".
"Yesterday you received an email from us about changes we were planning to make regarding automated push activity. We received a lot of great feedback to that email and have concluded based on this feedback that there is a better way to address the growing push volume we're seeing. As a result, you can ignore our previous email. We will not be making changes that target specific services.
Instead of singling out specific services, we are now putting an upper bound of 500 API pushes per month for free Pushbullet accounts. API pushes do not include pushes from services like IFTTT or from Channels or from Pushbullet apps. They are specifically from the use of our public API."
Still, I wonder how long that'll last. I'm still looking for an alternative either way.
LXD 2.1 has now been released with a whole bunch of features that have been accumulating in git for the past little while.
Going forward, you can expect a bunch more of those LXD feature releases to be pushed out, making it easier for everyone to play with the latest features.
Anyway, the highlights for this one are:
- A bunch of usability improvements to the command line
- Support for USB device passthrough
- A bunch of knobs for seccomp
- ETAG and PATCH support in the API
Note that this isn't a LTS release, it's a normal LXD feature release so expect limited support once the next one is out!
