Hi,
I'm trying to follow the LXC lab but after some trials and google searching I'm still with no networking containers.

Here my configs:

Following this issue I have also tried to run the lxc-start inside a systemd-run command, but being in a kvm machine it doesn't work

# systemd-run --user --scope -p "Delegate=yes" lxc-start -n ubby -F /bin/bash
Failed to connect to bus: $DBUS_SESSION_BUS_ADDRESS and $XDG_RUNTIME_DIR not defined (consider using --machine=<user>@.host --user to connect to bus of other user)

Any help?

    Not sure which cgroup you are looking at,
    I see Ubuntu 21.10 and lxc 4.10.
    We use long term releases for labs, so there may be some surprises with 21.10.

    Depending on which machine or VM you are running on, connect the network in /etc/lxc/default then re-create the lxc machine.

    Let me know. Lee

    Please show us your "/etc/lxc/default.conf" file.
    I'm using the bridge set up by libvirt and connecting the lxc-container to it; my file is below, notice the lxc.net.0.link value.

    [email protected]:~# cat /etc/lxc/default.conf
    lxc.net.0.type = veth
    lxc.net.0.link = virbr0
    lxc.net.0.flags = up
    lxc.net.0.hwaddr = 00:16:3e:xx:xx:xx

    And my containers have ip addresses in the same domain as KVM.
    [email protected]:~# lxc-ls -f
    NAME STATE AUTOSTART GROUPS IPV4 IPV6 UNPRIVILEGED
