Weekly status #318

Weekly status for the week of 25th September to 1st October.


This past week, LXD added a new feature regarding instance root disk initial volume configuration. The instance’s root disk initial volume configuration can now be set using initial.* configuration keys without having to edit the pool configuration itself.

LXD highlights


  • Allow instance root disk initial volume configuration using initial.* keys without having to edit the pool’s configuration.
  • Add new limits.priority configuration key to veth-based NIC devices that is compatible with both cgroupv1 and cgroupv2. The older per-instance limits.network.priority configuration key which only supports cgroupv1 has been deprecated.
  • Allow usage of remote: with lxc network list-allocations.


  • For OVN networks, prevent setting static IPv6 if IPv4 isn’t set. This is due to a bug in OVN.

Bug fixes

  • Fixed a bug where LXD failed to determine WWAN device resources.
  • Enforce security.shifted and security.unmapped for disk devices to be mutually exclusive.
  • Fixed an issue where snapshots might not be created on ZFS volumes, after upgrading from 5.17 to 5.18. This was due to invalidated keys not being unset on existing instances or custom volumes.

All changes

The items listed below is all of the work which happened over the past week and which will be included in the next release.
