I'm doing some testing and sometimes I have issues with containers and juju. How do I clean up a machine so that I can start using the local provider "from scratch" without reinstalling?
LXC containers and the Juju environment need to persist through a reboot, so everything is not contained in one place.
First, ensure that you have the environment destroyed and the containers are not running. Then remove the following files and directories:
Then you can reboostrap with a clean environment.
In certain cases you might need to list, stop, and destroy containers by hand, do this before removing the Juju files.
You might find the following snippet I use helpful:
It's a bash script that needs to be run as root, and it tries to clean up aggressively all remnants of a local juju environment, including LXC templates, containers, logs, running mongodb test servers, etc.
