       lxc-create - creates a container


       lxc-create -n name [-f config_file] [-t template]


       lxc-create  creates  a  system object where is stored the configuration
       informations and where can be stored user information.  The  identifier
       name is used to specify the container to be used with the different lxc

       This object is the definition of the different resources an application
       can   use  or  can  see.  The  more  the  configuration  file  contains
       informations, the more the container  is  isolated  and  the  more  the
       application is jailed.

       If  the  configuration file config_file is not specified, the container
       will be created with the default isolation:  processes,  sysv  ipc  and
       mount points.


          -f config_file
              Specify  the  configuration file to configure the virtualization
              and isolation functionalities for the container.

          -t template
              script that is  called  by  lxc-create.   eg:  lxc-debian,  lxc-
              busybox  ...   Refer  to those exemples for details of expecting
              script structure.


       The container already exists
              As the message mention it, you try to  create  a  container  but
              there  is a container with the same name. You can use the lxc-ls
              -l command to list the available containers on the system.
