lxc-console - Launch a console for the specified container
lxc-console -n name [-t ttynum]
If the tty service has been configured and is available for the
container specified as parameter, this command will launch a console
allowing to log on the container.
The available tty are free slots taken by this command. That means if
the container has four ttys available and the command has been launched
four times taking the different tty, the fifth command will fail
because no console will be available.
The command will connect to a tty. If the connection is lost or broken,
the command can be launched again and regain the tty at the state it
was before the disconnection.
Specify the tty number to connect, if not specified a tty number
will be automatically choosen by the container.
These options are common to most of lxc commands.

No tty is available or there is not enough privilege to use the

"bar" is trying to open a console to it.
