How to stop an instance

A running instance can be stopped using the amc stop command:

amc stop <instance_id>

<instance_id> is the ID of the instance that you want to stop.


Do not use the lxc command to manage an instance. Always use the amc command instead. In Anbox Cloud, instances have their own life cycle and using the lxc command to manage an instance can cause the instance to be out of sync.

By default, the amc stop command waits 5 minutes for an instance to stop before the operation times out. If you want to specify a custom wait time, you can do so by using the --timeout option in the amc stop command.

amc stop <instance_id> --timeout 10m
