[SOLVED] LXD Expand Image


(Juan) #1

Hi, I’d like to know how to add more space to my LXD containers deployed from ON. I’m using Ubuntu 18.04 KVM image from the ON Marketplace but when resized to 10GB I can see it stays at the standard ~2.1GB once the container has booted.

Thanks in advance

Are you resizing a KVM image or a LXD image ? It isn’t clear in your post.

Oh, I think I get it, sorry, KVM images don’t support the resize feature. Read http://docs.opennebula.org/5.8/deployment/open_cloud_host_setup/lxd_driver.html#considerations-limitations

Oh dang, yes, this seems to be the issue. Is there a way to get ext4 pre made images? I am fine with offline resize. Alternatively, how do I convert marketplace images to xfs/ext4?

LXD marketplaces images are imported by default on ext4 , alternatively you can create your own image

It seems like my marketplace was bugged and didn’t create the LXD VM templates once downloaded. I am fine setting the size on first boot/offline resize. Issue is fixed. thanks for the help.
