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.

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
