I'm running several LXD containers on a Ubuntu 16.04 LTS host. All of the machines are ruinning 64bit Linux.
Linux <hostname> 4.4.0-36-generic #55-Ubuntu SMP Thu Aug 11 18:01:55 UTC 2016 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux
I'm using ACLs (getfalc/setfacl) to configure the permissions of host mounted folders shared across different containers. While this works fine in general, for some folders I get the error message:
getfacl: <folder name>: Value too large for defined data type
I have several folders where this problem occurs in all containers, while it works fine on the host.
So far I could not figure out what makes these folders special.
