    Command:

    lxc-create

    
    
    

    SYNOPSIS

           lxc-create -n name [-f config_file] [-t template] [-B backingstore] [--
           template-options]
    
    
    

    DESCRIPTION

           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
           commands.
    
           The object is a directory created in /var/lib/lxc and identified by its
           name.
    
           The object is the definition of the different resources an  application
           can  use  or can see. The more the configuration file contains informa-
           tions, 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.
    
    
    

    OPTIONS

              -f config_file
                  Specify  the  configuration file to configure the virtualization
                  and isolation functionalities for the container.
    
              -t template
                  'template' is the  short  name  of  an  existing  'lxc-template'
                  script  that  is  called  by  lxc-create,  eg.  busybox, debian,
                  fedora,  ubuntu   or   sshd.    Refer   to   the   examples   in
                  /usr/lib/lxc/templates for details of the expected script struc-
                  ture.
    
              -B backingstore
                  'backingstore' is one of 'none', 'lvm', or 'btrfs'.  The default
                  is  'none', meaning that the container root filesystem will be a
                  directory  under  /var/lib/lxc/container/rootfs.    The   option
                  'btrfs'  need  not be specified as it will be used automatically
                  if the /var/lib/lxc filesystem is found to be btrfs.   If  back-
                  ingstore is 'lvm', then an lvm block device will be used and the
                  following further options are available: --lvname  lvname1  will
                  create an LV named lvname1 rather than the default, which is the
                  container name.  --vgname vgname1 will create the LV  in  volume
                  group  vgname1  rather  than  the default, lxc.  --fstype FSTYPE
                  will create an FSTYPE filesystem on  the  LV,  rather  than  the
                  default,  which  is  ext4.   --fssize SIZE will create a LV (and
                  filesystem) of size SIZE rather than the default, which is 1G.
    
              -- template-options
                  This will pass template-options to the  template  as  arguments.
