  • Applies to:
  • Virtuozzo containers for Windows 4.6
  • Virtual Automation 4.6

Symptoms

Container cannot be restored from a backup to a new CTID. Restoration fails with the following error message:

C:\Users\Administrator>vzarestore -B -e 326a28e5-f1e5-4aee-a38d-399396468e04\20140623043753:1123059 --storage root@backupnode1.net 
root@backupnode1.net's password:
Restoring existing Container from a backup of another Container is not supported

Cause

Container "1123059" already exists on the node.

Resolution

When restoring a backup of some container to a new container ID (vzarestore -B -e CTID:NewCTID) - make sure there is no container with the NewCTID on the node, for example:

C:\Users\Administrator>vzlist 100500
ERROR: Container 100500 does not exist
Container not found.

NOTE: check the version of PVA Agent on the node. The option to restore the backup to a new container ID has been added to vzarestore starting with 4.6.1734 version.
