  • Virtuozzo containers for Windows


Netcraft is a type of auditing software for Windows servers. By default, Netcraft reports all Containers on a Node as a single server due to their identical start time (taken from the TCP/IP stack). 


To work around this problem, Parallels developed a registry tweak so that different start times are reported for different Containers. To apply the tweak:
  1. On the affected Hardware Node, create the DWORD registry key HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\SWsoft\Virtuozzo\vzkrnl\VzFixTimeStamp.
  2. Set the key value to "1."
  3. Restart the Hardware Node.
Important! Before applying the tweak, make sure that the latest PVCfW updates are installed on the host. The updates that support the tweak are as follows:
