When an instance is either initialised with the
amc init (see Create an instance) command or stopped with the
amc stop command (See Stop an instance), you must start it explicitly with the
amc start command:
amc start <instance_id>
<instance_id> is the ID of the instance that you want to start.
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 start command waits 5 minutes for an instance to run before the operation times out. When starting an instance, you can specify a custom wait time with the
amc start <instance_id> --timeout 10m
--no-wait option is specified, the
amc start command exits immediately after the instance starts and will not wait till it is running.
amc start <instance_id> --no-wait
Starting an instance that has stopped with an error status is is not allowed. Doing so would cause the
amc start command to fail.
