PVA Agent installation fails in the very end, the log file
/var/log/pva/setup/YY-MM-DD_HH.MM.SScontains the following messages:
Container is not running Container configuration file does not exist Failed to start the Container Failed to start the Container [ERROR 7] Failed to start Service Container 09/28/13 12:29:40 Caught UIFailedQuitException 09/28/13 12:29:40 # STATE_FINISHED 09/28/13 12:29:40 # The pva-setup program failed to install/update the 'Parallels Virtual Automation' software on your computer.
CT #1 does not start:
~# vzctl start 1 Starting the Container ... Container is unmounted Container is mounted Failed to start the Container Container is unmounted Failed to start the Container ~#
The following messages are logged by the kernel if checked right after the start attempt:
~# dmesg | tail -5 [11086.346000] CT: 1: failed to start with err=-105 [11088.603000] CT: 1: stopped [11920.845000] Failed to initialize the ICMP6 control socket (err -105). [11920.866000] CT: 1: stopped [11920.866000] CT: 1: failed to start with err=-105 ~#
The error 105 is the generic error:
OS error code 105: No buffer space available
The default configuration file of the service container #1 set the limit for non-TCP sockets
numothersock, the default value is 360, however the container might need more sockets, about 490 in idle state.
To fix the situation, it is necessary to manually increase the limit and start this container:
~# vzctl set 1 --save --numothersock 600:600 ~# vzctl start 1
The situation is reported as PVA-33600, to be fixed in the future PVA Agent releases.
