virt-sandbox-service delete ā€” Delete a security container


  virt-sandbox-service [-c URI] delete [-h] [-p PATH] NAME


virt-sandbox-service is used to manage secure sandboxed system services. These applications will be launched via libvirt and run within a virtualization technology such as LinuX Containers (LXC), or optionally QEMU/KVM. The container / virtual machines will be secured by SELinux and resource separated using cgroups.

The delete command will delete a sandbox container.
