Container does not keep running

Well, I’m having trouble keeping containers running. I create the container, it starts, but it is automatically terminated.

See the image below:

The events:

The Dockerfile from the image “sdi:client”:

ENTRYPOINT service ssh restart & bash

I think I understood something wrong. And one more thing, the Dockerfile CMD command does not work in this example. Because when the container is started the SSH is disabled. So I put the ENTRYPOINT to start the service.

I need the containers to keep running. Because another container will send jobs to these clients. =/

Thank you very much.
