virt-login-shell - tool to execute a shell within a container matching the users name SYNOPSIS
virt-login-shell DESCRIPTION
The virt-login-shell program is a setuid shell that is used to join an LXC container that matches the user's name. If the container is not running, virt-login-shell will attempt to start the container. virt-sandbox-shell is not allowed to be run by root. Normal users will get added to a container that matches their username, if it exists, and they are configured in /etc/libvirt/virt-login-shell.conf. The basic structure of most virt-login-shell usage is: virt-login-shell OPTIONS
-h, --help Display command line help usage then exit. -V, --version Display version information then exit. CONFIG
By default, virt-login-shell will execute the /bin/sh program for the user. You can modify this behaviour by defining the shell variable in /etc/libvirt/virt-login-shell.conf. eg. shell = [ "/bin/ksh", "--login"] By default no users are allowed to use virt-login-shell, if you want to allow certain users to use virt-login-shell, you need to modify the allowed_users variable in /etc/libvirt/virt-login-shell.conf. eg. allowed_users = [ "tom", "dick", "harry" ] BUGS

virt-list-partitions - List partitions in a virtual machine or disk image SYNOPSIS
virt-list-partitions [--options] domname virt-list-partitions [--options] disk.img [disk.img ...] OBSOLETE
This tool is obsolete. Use virt-filesystems(1) as a more flexible replacement. DESCRIPTION
"virt-list-partitions" is a command line tool to list the partitions that are contained in a virtual machine or disk image. It is mainly useful as a first step to using virt-resize(1). "virt-list-partitions" is just a simple wrapper around libguestfs(3) functionality. For more complex cases you should look at the guestfish(1) tool. OPTIONS
--help Display brief help. --version Display version number and exit. -c URI --connect URI If using libvirt, connect to the given URI. If omitted, then we connect to the default libvirt hypervisor. If you specify guest block devices directly, then libvirt is not used at all. --format raw Specify the format of disk images given on the command line. If this is omitted then the format is autodetected from the content of the disk image. If disk images are requested from libvirt, then this program asks libvirt for this information. In this case, the value of the format parameter is ignored. If working with untrusted raw-format guest disk images, you should ensure the format is always specified. -h --human-readable Show sizes in human-readable form (eg. "1G"). -l --long With this option, "virt-list-partitions" displays the type and size of each partition too (where "type" means "ext3", "pv" etc.) -t --total Display the total size of each block device (as a separate row or rows). SHELL QUOTING
Libvirt guest names can contain arbitrary characters, some of which have meaning to the shell such as "#" and space. You may need to quote or escape these characters on the command line. See the shell manual page sh(1) for details. SEE ALSO
