    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.
    
           --rcfile=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).
    
           --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.
