Re: unaccessible directory in lxcContainerResolveSymlinks



Hi Michal,

This is how snippets from my XML looks like. Full XML at the end of the mail.. 
    <emulator>/usr/sbin/libvirt_lxc</emulator>
    <filesystem type='mount' accessmode='passthrough'>
      <source dir='/vol/usb1/iox/repo-lxc/utd/rootfs_mnt'/>
      <target dir='/'/>
    </filesystem>
    <filesystem type='mount' accessmode='passthrough'>
      <source dir='/flash/dir'/>
      <target dir='/flash/dir'/>
    </filesystem>

The issue I am facing is, my container doesnt start. Fails at mounting this /flash/dir  with below message.

2021-06-09 06:52:55.548+0000: 1: error : lxcContainerMountFSBind:1223 : Failed to bind mount directory /.oldroot/flash/dir to /flash/dir: No such file or directory


I see that .oldroot is added to this path and figured out that lxcContainerPivotRoot is creating and mounting all folders under rootfs to rootfs/.oldroot
But durig pivot root, this path /flash/dir is unaccessible and hence we don't seem to create this .oldroot/flash/dir. 
Later on, during lxcContainerMountFSBind(), /.oldroot/flash/dir bind mount fails.

Any thoughts?

Thanks
Priyanka

Hey, looking into the code the function is ran from a mount namespace
thus the path may not exist. But is there a problem you are seeing? If
so, can you share your LXC XML and describe the problem? I mean, the
message you mention is just a debug printing, harmless.
