I have an Ubuntu repository server in my network. I want to create a lxc container using lxc-create. How can i change the default repository of lxc-create to my repository?

There isn't any option available on its manual.


Set the environment variable MIRROR to your preferred mirror then use the lxc-create command:

MIRROR="http://mirrors.kernel.org/ubuntu" SECURITY_MIRROR="http://mirrors.kernel.org/ubuntu" lxc-create -n foo

The 'ubuntu' template has --mirror and --security-mirror options:

lxc-create -n myvm -t ubuntu -- --mirror="http://my-mirror:3142/archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu" --security-mirror="http://my-mirror:3142/archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu"
