How to Auto Start LXCs when Host Starts
LXCs don’t normally auto start when the host server starts. We have to manually configure them to auto start.
Go to the LXC directory from your host server. All LXCs are stored in the
/var/lib/lxc/ directory of the host, and all LXCs have a directory with their name inside that directory. So, if the name of your LXC is
com-budhajeewa, that LXC’s directory would be
cd into it.
Now open the
config file which is in that directory, and add the following lines at the end of it:
#Auto Start lxc.start.auto = 1 lxc.start.delay = 5
You can verify that your configuration change worked by issuing
lxc-ls -f command. You’ll get an output like this:
NAME STATE AUTOSTART GROUPS IPV4 IPV6 com-budhajeewa RUNNING 1 - 10.0.3.2 -
If “Autostart” is set to “1”, all has gone well.
