  • Applies to:
  • Virtuozzo containers for Windows

Symptoms

  1. Container has been reinstalled and it has disappeared from the hardware node
  2. Container had windows7_skin template included

Cause

In case an application template, added to the container, has a reboot action included into its installation scripts (like windows7_skin template does), the reinstallation procedure becomes interrupted, and, as a result, its configuration file gets removed from %VZROOT%\Conf directory.

This behavior is recognized as product bug PCWIN-20255 and will be fixed in one of the future PVC versions.

Resolution

The only solution that will prevent this effect is to manually remove windows7_skin template from the container before reinstallation and add it again afterwards.

To make the container available again after the issue already happened, it is enough to copy the configuration file of the container from %VZROOT%\private\<CTID> to %VZROOT%\Conf directory.
