[lxc-users] Big snapshots abort...
md at humanity.net

There is a lot of space on that server and I did an rsync of that container
The strange thing is that at the end of the snapshot, all the files and
directories had been copied to the snapshot directory but the snapshot
process initiated by the snapshot command never got terminated. So I made
several tries to understand what was going on. Every time, after I killed
the snapshot command, the related container's snapshot directory got
deleted. That's why I reported the issue.
Like I said in a previous message, I will move all the stuff hosted on that
server to another one (ZFS) soon. So I don't really care about the problem
but may be someone else could bump on it too. I don't know.
