NAME

       lxc-start-ephemeral - start an ephemeral copy of an existing container

SYNOPSIS

       lxc-start-ephemeral [-o] [-n] [-d] [--bdir] [--user] [--key] [--union-type] [--keep-data]
                           [COMMAND]

DESCRIPTION

       lxc-start-ephemeral start an ephemeral copy of an existing container.

OPTIONS

       -o     Original container name

       [-n]   Name of the ephemeral container (defaults to a random suffix).

       [-d]   Start the container in background and print the name and IP.  This option can't  be
              used if a command is passed.

       [--bdir]
              Directory to bind mount into container.  Can be passed multiple times.

       [--user]
              The user to connect to the container as.  Used when passing a command to lxc-start-
              ephemeral.

       [--key]
              Copy the provided SSH public key into the container.

       [--union-type]
              Force a specific union file system.  Can be one of: overlayfs aufs

       [--keep-data]
              Use a persistent backend instead of tmpfs.  With this option, you can lxc-stop  and
              lxc-start  the  no  longer  so  ephemeral  container  (it's still an overlay, but a
              persistent one).

       [COMMAND]
              Immediately run the provided command in the container.   This  currently  uses  ssh
              (not attach) and is incompatible with daemon mode.

EXAMPLES

       lxc-start-ephemeral -o p1
              Simply start an ephemeral container and attach to the console.  This container will
              be based on existing container "p1".

       lxc-start-ephemeral -o p1 -n p1-ephemeral -d
              Start an ephemeral container based on p1 called p1-ephemeral and print its  IP  and
              name to the console instead of attaching.
