Create LXC container - nesting default value


New Member

When I create a LXC container I always see "nesting = true".
At pve-docs I see nesting default to be 0 ("nesting = false").

Is this a case to report?


Not so long ago it was disabled by default. But if I remember correctly newer systemd versions require it to be enabled so this was changed so people stop getting frustrated because LXCs won't work out of the box anymore.

So yes, I think the manual needs to be updated.
