A

In order to use the "docker container start" or "docker start" command, we need to know the container ID or name.

1. Get the ID or name of a stopped container from the output of the "docker container list --all" command:

fyicenter$ docker container list --all

CONTAINER ID  IMAGE        COMMAND   STATUS                  NAMES
96ce071457fc  hello-world  "/hello"  Exited (0) 6 hours ago  gallant_kepler
...

2. Start a container by name:

fyicenter$ docker container start gallant_kepler
gallant_kepler

fyicenter$ docker ps
CONTAINER ID  IMAGE        COMMAND   STATUS        NAMES
96ce071457fc  hello-world  "/hello"  Up 8 seconds  gallant_kepler

3. Stop a container by ID:

fyicenter$ docker container stop 96ce071457fc
96ce071457fc

fyicenter$ docker container list --all 
CONTAINER ID  IMAGE        COMMAND   STATUS                    NAMES
96ce071457fc  hello-world  "/hello"  Exited (0) 7 seconds ago  gallant_kepler

As you can see, "docker container stop" command terminates the running command of the target container. The exit code of the running command is reported in the STATUS column like "Exited (0)".

And "docker container stop" command starts the running command again of the target container.
