How to start a container
When a container is either initialised with the
amc init (see Create a container) command or stopped with the
amc stop command (See Stop a container), you must start it explicitly with the
amc start command:
amc start <container id>
<container id> is the ID of the container that you want to start.
Do not use the
lxc command to manage a container. Always use the
amc command instead. Anbox Cloud containers have their own life cycle and using the
lxc command to manage a container can cause the container to be out of sync.
By default, the
amc start command waits 5 minutes for a container to run before the operation times out. When starting a container, you can specify a custom wait time with the
amc start <container id> --timeout 10m
--no-wait option is specified, the
amc start command exits immediately after the container starts and will not wait till it is running.
amc start <container id> --no-wait
Starting a container that has stopped with an error status is is not allowed. Doing so would cause the
amc start command to fail.
