LXC/LXD Containers

You should have either a blank disk or an existing zpool for storage. Run lxd init, answer the questions with Yes for the most part. Enter either the disk name like /dev/sdb or the zpool name tank when prompted.

Once complete, you can start up an Alpine container with

lxc launch images:alpine/3.12 alpinecontainer

or a Ubuntu container with

lxc launch ubuntu:20.04 ubuntucontainer

You can then connect to the container with

lxc exec alpinecontainer -- /bin/sh


lxc exec ubuntucontainer -- /bin/bash
