VIRT-LOGIN-SHELL(1)		      Virtualization Support		      VIRT-LOGIN-SHELL(1)

NAME
       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" ]
