Hi Juju,

Boostrapping a local LXD controller, it sits at "Attempting to connect 
to..." for a good 5-10 minutes. Any idea what it is doing, and how to 
speed it up?


Host: Ubuntu 16.04

Juju: 2.2.4-xenial-amd64

CLI: juju bootstrap localhost devlocal


Please either create a new controller using "juju bootstrap" or connect to
another controller that you have been given access to using "juju register".
