Managing the Lifecycle of a Secure Container
- Managing the Lifecycle of a Secure Container
Starting a Secure Container
You can use the Docker engine or iSulad as the container engine of the secure container. The invoking methods of the two engines are similar. You can select either of them to start a secure container.
To start a secure container, perform the following steps:
Ensure that the secure container component has been correctly installed and deployed.
Prepare the container image. Assume that the container image is busybox. Run the following commands to download the container image using the Docker engine or iSulad:
docker pull busybox
isula pull busybox
Start a secure container. Run the following commands to start a secure container using the Docker engine or iSulad:
docker run -tid --runtime kata-runtime --network none busybox <command>
isula run -tid --runtime kata-runtime --network none busybox <command>
The secure container supports the CNI network only and does not support the CNM network. The -p and –expose options cannot be used to expose container ports. When using a secure container, you need to specify the –net=none option.
Start a pod.
Start the pause container and obtain the sandbox ID of the pod based on the command output. Run the following commands to start a pause container using the Docker engine or iSulad:
docker run -tid --runtime kata-runtime --network none --annotation io.kubernetes.docker.type=podsandbox <pause-image> <command>
isula run -tid --runtime kata-runtime --network none --annotation io.kubernetes.cri.container-type=sandbox <pause-image> <command>
Create a service container and add it to the pod. Run the following commands to create a service container using the Docker engine or iSulad:
docker run -tid --runtime kata-runtime --network none --annotation io.kubernetes.docker.type=container --annotation io.kubernetes.sandbox.id=<sandbox-id> busybox <command>
isula run -tid --runtime kata-runtime --network none --annotation io.kubernetes.cri.container-type=container --annotation io.kubernetes.cri.sandbox-id=<sandbox-id> busybox <command>
–annotation is used to mark the container type, which is provided by the Docker engine and iSulad, but is not provided by the open-source Docker engine in the upstream community.
Stopping a Secure Container
Run the following command to stop a secure container:
docker stop <contaienr-id>
Stop a pod.
When stopping a pod, note that the lifecycle of the pause container is the same as that of the pod. Therefore, stop service containers before the pause container.
Deleting a Secure Container
Ensure that the container has been stopped. Run the following command to delete the container:
docker rm <container-id>
To forcibly delete a running container, use the -f option:
docker rm -f <container-id>
Running a New Command in the Container
The pause container functions only as a placeholder container. Therefore, after a pod is started, run the new command in the service container. The pause container does not execute the corresponding command. If you need to start only one container, you can run the following command:
docker exec -ti <container-id> <command>
- If the preceding command has no response because another host is running the docker restart or docker stop command to access the same container, you can press Ctrl+P+Q to exit the operation.
- If the -d option is used, the command is executed in the background and no error information is displayed. The exit code cannot be used to determine whether the command is executed correctly.
