  • Virtuozzo containers for Windows


It is impossible to change user password with vzctl:

C:\>vzctl set CTID --userpasswd test:"*****"
Cannot set password in CT CTID for user test
SetUserPassword for container CTID returned 0x040008AD


Most probably, there is no such user inside the container.


Verify if such user exists:

C:\>vzctl exec CTID net user test
The user name could not be found.

If it's required to create the user manually:

C:\>vzctl exec CTID net user test password /add
