Description Daniel Walsh 2013-07-25 13:18:05 EDT
THis would allow us to start a container when a user logs in for OpenShift.
It would also allow us to manage containers using the libvirt protocol so tools like boxes or virt-manager and eventually more powerful tools can start/stop containers.

When creating a sandbox, it is now persisted with libvirt

NB, when upgrading from 0.2.1 to 0.5.0, you won't be able to use an sandboxes you previously created. To fix existing sandboxes you must run

 virt-sandbox-service upgrade SANDBOXNAME

for each sandbox.

verify with :

1: use virt-sandbox-service to create a container and start
#virt-sandbox-service create -C -u httpd.service apache01
#virsh -c lxc:/// start apache01

2: use virsh to check container status
#virsh -c lxc:/// list --all
 Id    Name                           State
 8072  apache01                          running

3:destroy the container
#virsh -c lxc:/// destroy apache01 

4:check container status
# virsh -c lxc:/// list --all
 Id    Name                           State
 -     apache01                       shut off

5:start the container using libvirt

#virsh -c lxc:/// start apache01
Domain apache01 started

try using virt-manager to start&stop container, worked as expect.

use libvirt-sandbox-0.2.1-1.el7 to create container,
#virt-sandbox-service create -C -u httpd.service http1
Created sandbox container dir /var/lib/libvirt/filesystems/http1
Created unit file /etc/systemd/system/http1_sandbox.service
Created sandbox config /etc/libvirt-sandbox/services/http1.sandbox

upgrade to libvirt-sandbox-0.5.0-1.el7.x86_64

upgrade container
# virt-sandbox-service upgrade http1
Created unit file /etc/systemd/system/http1_sandbox.service
Created sandbox config /etc/libvirt-sandbox/services/http1/config/sandbox.cfg

# virsh -c lxc:/// list --all
 Id    Name                           State
 -     apache01                       shut off
 -     http1                          shut off

# virsh -c lxc:/// start http1
Domain http1 started
