NAME         top

       lxc-update-config - update a legacy pre LXC 2.1 configuration

SYNOPSIS         top

       lxc-update-config {-c config}

DESCRIPTION         top

       lxc-update-config detects any legacy configuration keys in the
       given config file and will replace them with the appropriate new
       configuration keys.

       lxc-update-config will first create a backup of the old config
       file in the same directory and name it config.backup and then
       update the original config file in place. In case the update
       fails to apply or leads to an invalid config file that cannot be
       used to start a container users can either compare config with
       config.backup and try to manually repair any the invalid
       configuration keys or simply rollback to the legacy configuration
       file by copying config.backup to config.

       Any failures for lxc-update-config to generate a useable config
       file are a bug and should be reported upstream.

OPTIONS         top

       -c, --config
              Path to the configuration file to update.
