After updating my Proxmox Server to PVE8.0, suddenly two lxc containers did not start anymore.
root@pve:~# pct start 192 run_buffer: 322 Script exited with status 2 lxc_init: 844 Failed to run lxc.hook.pre-start for container "192" __lxc_start: 2027 Failed to initialize container "192" startup for container '192' failed
I tried to view the error.log but couldn’t find any helpful information.
lxc-start -lDEBUG -o error.log -F -n 192
When googling, I stumbled across this reddit post. Although the issue was a bit different, I tried the recommended steps. The first command, directly led me to the right direction…
root@pve:~# pct mount 192 mounting container failed directory '/mnt/nfs/data/folder' does not exist
For whatever reason, after restarting proxmox it did not mount the nfs shares properly on the host. And of course, after this hint, I noticed that both containers were trying to mount some of these folders, which were actually nfs shares from my NAS. A simple
mount -a on the host fixed it immediately. Besides of this little problem, everything went well with the proxmox upgrade!
