Information

Parallels Virtual Automation operates with containers and virtual machines by means of EID (Environment ID). Across the entire PVA infrastructure, each Hardware Node and each container obtains a unique EID, while container ID and virtual machine names may repeat.

To perform any operation on a virtual machine or a container via XML API, it is necessary to find its EID.

On Parallels Virtuozzo Containers for Windows


  1. Find the private area location of the container:
    C:\Users\Administrator>test_vzsrvapi queryMounts 101
    Query result=0 count=1
    Mounts of VPS 101:
            [C:] type=Loopback
                    valid=yes
                    mounted=no
                    mapped=no
                    shared=no
                    file=root.efd
                    fileFull=C:\vz\Private\101\root.efd
                    guid={2588695a-1a84-4209-b71a-ecfcad1bfcfb}
    Command completed SUCCESSFULLY
  2. Get the contents of the .vza\eid.conf file inside the container's private folder:
    C:\Users\Administrator>type C:\vz\Private\101\.vza\eid.conf
    5e7c2c98-f5b8-4e8d-b3b6-e3f25ce026f8
    C:\Users\Administrator>

On Parallels Virtuozzo Containers for Linux and Parallels Server Bare Metal


Get the contents of the /vz/private/${CTID}/.vza/eid.conf file inside the container's private folder:
[root@myserver ~]# cat /vz/private/14/.vza/eid.conf
