Important information regarding vzctl (Released 2012-01-12)

The latest version of vzctl ( now requires the swappages UBC parameter to be set in the containers config before it will start the container. The issue is that swappages is a new parameter and existing non VSwap containers won’t have this setting in there config file.

We are currently testing a fix for release shortly. If you need to downgrade your vzctl version you can do the following on any of your openvz host nodes:

cp /etc/vz/vz.conf /etc/vz/vz.conf.moved
yum remove vzctl vzctl-lib
cd /tmp
rpm -ihv vzctl- vzctl-lib-
cp /etc/vz/vz.conf.moved /etc/vz/vz.conf
service vz restart

Please note the above instructions are for x86_64 (64bit) host nodes only.
