Type: none


The none device type is supported for both containers and VMs.

A none device doesn’t have any properties and doesn’t create anything inside the instance.

Its only purpose is to stop inheriting devices that come from profiles. To do so, add a device with the same name as the one that you do not want to inherit, but with the device type none.

You can add this device either in a profile that is applied after the profile that contains the original device, or directly on the instance.

Configuration examples

Add a none device to an instance:

lxc config device add <instance_name> <device_name> none

See Configure devices for more information.
