VM Creation issues. Seems like a quota problem just not sure where.

Having some troubles getting vm's to build on select servers. The
servers that are having issues with this template are 2.6.32 vs 2.6.18
kernels. Under the 2.6.18 kernel this template builds just fine. With a
2.6.32 kernel I get the following:

2012-08-05T11:46:51-0400 vzctl : CT 1884 : Creating container private

VSwap is a feature provided by the kernel, and it is unrelated to a 
distribution
that you run inside an OpenVZ container.

So this question is not Debian-specific, thus replying to users <at>  in Cc.

You haven't provided enough information to find out what is wrong.
Missing info is: your kernel version, /proc/user_beancounters contents etc.

Building a custom container

Hi,

I know this is a pretty basic question, but could someone point me in
the right direction to set up a custom container? I want to set up
OSSIM 4.0 as a virtual machine. As there are no OpenVZ VMs available
that I know of, I would like to set one up. I'm running Proxmox VE
2.0, but my hardware, while 64 bit, does not have the virtualization
extensions to allow me to run KVM, so I would like to set up an OpenVZ
container to run it. Would the best approach be to build it on
something like VirtualBox then convert it, or is there a more
straightforward way to go directly from the OSSIM iso image to a
container?

Thanks,

General advice for converting a physical machine (or HVM virtualized VM) to a container can be found here:

http://wiki.openvz.org/P2v

It appears that OSSIM is Debian Squeeze based... and it would be nice if they offered a repository of the
OSSIM speciality packages... and then you could make a Debian container and install the OSSIM packages. 
Unfortunately their website doesn't container a lot of information... but I wonder if you just do an
install and then examine their sources list to see if they indeed do have a custom repo to keep their
software updated.  You could also examine what default Debian packages they install... compare the
packages to factory settings to figure out what files they have altered (usually only config files)...
and armed with that knowledge, you could possibly simulate their package.  Of course that assumes they
properly package up as .deb files... the software they provide.

Good luck,

Ploop Replication

Hi,

Is there a method to allow for continuos replication with ploop. I know ploop now has a newer model for
replicating itself and then at the last moment doing a live switch but it would be good if there was the
option for continuos replication so effectively sync but not final switch?

Thanks

3.0 Kernel

Hi,

Can I enquire what plans if any there are for supporting the 3.0 Kernel stream, Oracle Enterprise Kernel now
uses this as its default and has many strong features that we would like to use, other than that is it based on
RHEL 6.3

My other question would be how hard is it to patch the newer kernel with the current patch set?

Thanks

I am getting errors with vzctl when trying to add a second guest using ploop as backend storage. Any ideas?

Hi,

wiki.openvz.org loads static.openvz.org, which requires a password,
and prompts my browser for a login/pwd.

Have you changed something?
