  • Virtuozzo containers for Windows 4.6

Symptoms

Container cannot be started or mounted with the following error :

    C:\>vzctl mount 172
    Parallels Virtuozzo Containers API function call 'VZVolumeMountExW' failed (C:\vz\Private\172\root.efd, {04588fbf-09b5-42a1-af9b-5f0031dd511c}) err = 1450
    Parallels Virtuozzo Containers API function call 'dq_mount' failed
    Cannot set disk quota for container 172

Cause

Error 1450 means :

    C:\>net helpmsg 1450
    Insufficient system resources exist to complete the requested service.

In most cases, it happens due to a lack of non-paged pool memory.

Resolution

Examine the kernel memory usage on the hardware node as per this article :

  • #1675 - Troubleshooting paged and non-paged memory pool shortage

and decrease the non-paged pool memory usage.

A node reboot may serve as a short-term solution.

Alternatively, some containers can be migrated off the hardware node to lessen its load.
