Hi,


[root@alexlm ~]# lxc move test2 alexsv:
Error: Unable to perform container live migration. CRIU isn't installed on the destination server
[root@alexlm ~]# lxc move --mode push test2 alexsv:
Error: Unable to perform container live migration. CRIU isn't installed on the destination server
[root@alexlm ~]# ssh alex@alexsv criu --version
Version: 3.14
[root@alexlm ~]# criu --version
Version: 3.12

what am I missing? Adding —verbose and —debug just dumps the lxd API requests

thanks,

Serge E. Hallyn

they both have it, the first version command was a ssh to alexsv

[root@alexlm ~]# ssh alex@alexsv criu --version
Version: 3.14
[root@alexlm ~]# criu --version
Version: 3.12

What is the path to criu on the dest server? lxd just uses
exec.LookPath("criu"), so maybe criu isn't in lxd's patch?

it is in /usr/sbin and it is in the lxd’s path. I have tried symlinking to /usr/bin but still the same

[root@alexlm ~]# pgrep lxd
1484
[root@alexlm ~]# xargs -0 < /proc/1484/cmdline
lxd --logfile /var/snap/lxd/common/lxd/logs/lxd.log --group lxd
[root@alexlm ~]# xargs -0n1 < /proc/1484/environ | grep ^PATH
PATH=/snap/lxd/current/zfs-0.8/bin:/run/bin:/snap/lxd/16926/usr/sbin:/snap/lxd/16926/usr/bin:/snap/lxd/16926/sbin:/snap/lxd/16926/bin:/usr/local/sbin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/sbin:/usr/bin:/sbin:/bin:/usr/games:/usr/local/games:/snap/lxd/current/bin
[root@alexlm ~]# which criu
/usr/sbin/criu

For posterity, after giving up on this, I found a solution by accident: criu must be enabled in lxd for this to work

snap set lxd criu.enable=true

now live migrate does not complain about missing criu, but fails with various other errors, but that’s another problem ;)
