How to stop a container

A running container can be stopped using the amc stop command:

amc stop <container id>

<container id> is the ID of the container that you want to stop.


Do not use the lxc command to manage a container. Always use the amc command instead. Anbox Cloud containers have their own life cycle and using the lxc command to manage a container can cause the container to be out of sync.

By default, the amc stop command waits 5 minutes for a container to stop before the operation times out. If you want to specify a custom wait time, you can do so by using the --timeout option in the amc stop command.

amc stop <container id> --timeout 10m
