Weekly status #333

Weekly status for the week of 29th January to 4th February.


The highlight of the past week was the release of LXD 5.0.3 LTS. This is the third bugfix release for LXD 5.0 which is supported until June 2027.


lxd.migrate command removed

The lxd.migrate command that is provided as part of the LXD snap package has been removed.
This was used to migrate from earlier LXD installations that were installed using .deb packages. However it was causing confusion with the similarly named lxd-migrate tool which is provided to help transfer existing workloads into LXD.

Migrating from these earlier installations should now be done by way of the lxd.migrate command provided in the 5.0/stable channel and then you can refresh up to later version of LXD.

LTS indication in the lxc version and lxc --version commands.

With the next LTS series not far away we have added an LTS indicator into the lxc version commands and the lxc --version output. This will help avoid confusion when working in mixed version environments or when using the non-LTS client to interact with an LTS server. This information is also available from the API.

Bug fixes:

  • Fixed restore the VM’s filesystem volume when restoring VM snapshots on LVM and Ceph RBD.
  • Only use server-side move when dealing with a single server.
  • Regenerate the FS UUID when restoring snapshots for Ceph RBD filesystem volumes only.
