Is it safe to use
vzctl --skiplock option on Parallels Virtuozzo Containers for Windows?
It is strictly forbidded to use
--skiplock option on start/stop operations on containers. Skipping locks on container shutdown may result in open kernel locks on container objects and subsequent start of such container will be unclean, leading to an uncontrollable situation, where hardware node reboot will be the only way out.
--skiplock with containers in backing up or updating states is possible, while it is better to avoid using
--skiplock with restoring, migrating and cloning states.
