Symptoms

It is not possible to create a ploop container based on a standard template (with --pkgset key):

    ~# vzctl create CTID --pkgset gentoo-standard-x86-64 --pkgver 20130718 --config gentoo-default-x86_64
    Creating the Container private area (gentoo-standard-x86-64/20130718)
    Failed to read /vz/private/CTID.private_temporary-XXXX/root.hdd/DiskDescriptor.xml:
    Can't parse /vz/private/CTID.private_temporary-XXXX/root.hdd/DiskDescriptor.xml

Cause

Ploop containers do not support standard templates.

Resolution

To create containers based on standard templates, you should create containers in VZFS format by adding --velayout key:

    ~# vzctl create CTID --pkgset gentoo-standard-x86-64 --pkgver 20130718 --config gentoo-default-x86_64 --velayout 4

NOTE: to manage standard templates on a PCS node, you should install the optional package vzpkgtools-compat :

    ~# yum install vzpkgtools-compat
