An instance is a virtual machine created and managed by Multipass.
Instances in Multipass can be of two kinds: primary or regular.
The primary instance is the default instance created or used when invoking the
shell commands without giving a
name argument. By default, the instance will be configured with 1 CPU, 1 gigabyte of memory, 5 gigabytes of virtual disk space, and the user’s home directory automatically mounted into the instance.
As with any other mount, it can be unmounted with
multipass umount. For instance,
multipass umount primary will unmount all mounts made by Multipass inside
primary, including the auto-mounted
Home. (On Windows, mounts are disabled by default for security reasons. See
local.privileged-mounts for information on how to enable them if you need.)
The regular instance is any instance that is not the primary instance.
A regular instance can be made primary. See
