Adding LXD VM hosts with the MAAS CLI

Hi all,

To be honest I think it is a bug, I am trying to add an lxd cluster via maas cli, I am issuing command

maas admin vm-hosts create -d type=lxd power_address=lxdbr0_address:8443 password=mysecretpwproject=juju name=lxd3 pool=default

It results in

200 OK

Maas is inside an lxd container in that host, the connectivity is there

Unfortunately every time the outcome is

0 resources :frowning:
I can see the problem being discussed in

But I wonder which conf files the author @minhoryang meant :confused:
In my environment there is a snap installation.
How can one investigate it further?
