I need to make changes to all containers running Parallels Plesk Panel massively from node. What is the proper way to do this?


Plesk utilities in containers can be executed from a hardware node in several ways.

  1. By using vzctl exec and specifying that cmd program inside the container should be used.


    > vzctl exec 103 cmd /c %plesk_bin%\subscription.exe -i


    > vzctl exec 103 cmd /c C:\Parallels\Plesk\admin\bin\subscription.exe -i
  2. By creating a file with .cmd extension on host containing necessary commands. Then you can apply it to all containers at once by:

    > for /f %i in ('vzlist -Ho veid') do vzctl enter %i < mycommand.cmd 

(do not forget to end .cmd file with "exit", otherwise "vzctl enter" would not quit)
