lxc-console - Launch a console for the specified container


lxc-console -n name -t ttynum


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 to 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 taking the 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.


-n name
Specify the container name to open a console.
-t ttynum
Specify the tty number to connect.


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.
