NAME

       lxc-start - run an application inside a container.

SYNOPSIS

       lxc-start {-n name} [-f config_file] [-c console_device] [-L
                 console_logfile] [-d] [-F] [-p pid_file] [-s KEY=VAL] [-C]
                 [--share-[net|ipc|uts] name|pid] [command]

DESCRIPTION

       lxc-start  runs the specified command inside the container specified by
       name.

       It will setup the container according to the  configuration  previously
       defined  with  the  lxc-create  command  or with the configuration file
       parameter.  If no configuration is defined, the  default  isolation  is
       used.

       If  no  command is specified, lxc-start will use the command defined in
       lxc.init_cmd or if not set, the default "/sbin/init" command to  run  a
       system container.

OPTIONS

       -d, --daemon
              Run the container as a daemon. As the container has no more tty,
              if an error occurs nothing will be displayed, the log  file  can
              be used to check the error. (This is the default mode)

       -F, --foreground
              Run the container in the foreground. In this mode, the container
              console will be attached to the current tty and signals will  be
              routed directly to the container.

       -p, --pidfile pid_file
              Create a file with the process id.

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

              This configuration file if present will be used even if there is
              already  a  configuration file present in the previously created
              container (via lxc-create).

       -c, --console console_device
              Specify a device to use for the container's console, for example
              /dev/tty8.  If this option is not specified the current terminal
              will be used unless -d is specified.

       -L, --console-log console_logfile
              Specify a file to log the container's console output to.

       -s, --define KEY=VAL
              Assign value VAL to configuration variable KEY.  This  overrides
              any assignment done in config_file.

       -C, --close-all-fds
              If  any  file  descriptors  are  inherited,  close them. If this
              option is not specified, then lxc-start will exit  with  failure
              instead. Note: --daemon implies --close-all-fds.

       --share-net name|pid
              Inherit  a network namespace from a name container or a pid. The
              network namespace will continue to be managed  by  the  original
              owner.  The  network  configuration of the starting container is
              ignored and the up/down scripts won't be executed.

       --share-ipc name|pid
              Inherit an IPC namespace from a name container or a pid.

       --share-uts name|pid
              Inherit a UTS namespace from a name  container  or  a  pid.  The
              starting LXC will not set the hostname, but the container OS may
              do it anyway.

COMMON OPTIONS

       These options are common to most of lxc commands.

       -?, -h, --help
              Print a longer usage message than normal.

       --usage
              Give the usage message

       -q, --quiet
              mute on

       -P, --lxcpath=PATH
              Use an alternate container path. The default is /var/lib/lxc.

       -o, --logfile=FILE
              Output to an alternate log FILE. The default is no log.

       -l, --logpriority=LEVEL
              Set log priority to LEVEL. The default log  priority  is  ERROR.
              Possible  values  are  : FATAL, CRIT, WARN, ERROR, NOTICE, INFO,
              DEBUG.

              Note that this option is setting the priority of the events  log
              in  the  alternate  log file. It do not have effect on the ERROR
              events log on stderr.

       -n, --name=NAME
              Use container identifier NAME.  The container identifier  format
              is an alphanumeric string.

       --version
              Show the version number.

DIAGNOSTIC

       The container is busy
              The  specified  container is already running an application. You
              should stop it before reuse this container or create a new one.
