virt-login-shell - tool to execute a shell within a container matching the users name
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:
Display command line help usage then exit.
Display version information then exit.
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
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
eg. allowed_users = [ "tom", "dick", "harry" ]
