    NAME
           lxc-console - Launch a console for the specified container
    
    SYNOPSIS
           lxc-console
    {-n name} [-e escape character] [-t ttynum]
    
    DESCRIPTION
           If the tty service has been configured and is available for the
           container specified as parameter, this command will launch a console
           allowing to log on the container.
    
           The available tty are free slots taken by this command. That means if
           the container has four ttys available and the command has been launched
           four times each taking a different tty, the fifth command will fail
           because no console will be available.
    
           The command will connect to a tty. If the connection is lost or broken,
           the command can be launched again and regain the tty at the state it
           was before the disconnection.
    
           A ttynum of 0 may be given to attach to the container's /dev/console
           instead of its dev/tty<ttynum>.
    
           A keyboard escape sequence may be used to disconnect from the tty and
           quit lxc-console. The default escape sequence is <Ctrl+a q>.
    
    OPTIONS
           -e, --escape escape character
    	      Specify the escape sequence prefix to use instead of <Ctrl a>.
    	      This may be given as '^letter' or just 'letter'. For example to
    	      use <Ctrl+b q> as the escape sequence use -e '^b'.
    
           -t, --tty ttynum
    	      Specify the tty number to connect to or 0 for the console. If
    	      not specified the next available tty number will be
    	      automatically chosen by the container.
    
    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
           tty service denied
    	      No tty is available or there is not enough privilege to use the
    	      console. For example, the container belongs to user "foo" and
    	      "bar" is trying to open a console to it.
