  • Virtuozzo containers for Linux 4.7


After the in-place upgrade of the OpenVZ installation onto Parallels Containers 4.7, it is no longer possible to start a container. The following error is displayed:
# vzctl start 101
Invalid value for DISKSPACE=1G:1.1G; skipped
Error: Not enough parameters, diskspace quota is not set


Parallels Containers does expect the container configuration file (/etc/vz/conf/101.conf) to list information about the diskspace given to the container in the following format:
# cat /etc/vz/conf/101.conf |grep DISKSPACE

OpenVZ stored that information in a different format.


Adjust the container configuration file so that the DISKSPACE value there matches the format which Parallels Containers expects as below:

Where XXXXXX is the soft diskspace limit and YYYYYY is the hard diskspace limit. Both values are in kilobytes.
