While trying to start a container, the following error is displayed:
C:> vzctl start 101 Starting container ... License limit was reached, cannot continue operation CTID 101
But the license is "Active":
C:> vzlicview | findstr status status="ACTIVE"
vzlicview utility does not show the amount of running containers:
C:> vzlicview | findstr ct_total ct_total=55
Normally it should specify amount of currently running containers in the "( )" brackets, e.g:
C:> vzlicview | findstr ct_total ct_total=50 (20)
In addition, there are containers hung in starting state:
C:> vzlist | findstr starting 102 35 starting 192.168.1.2 CT102
Such behavior is recognized as a product bug PCWIN-18113.
Virtuozzo license monitor is being started when containers startup was initiated, thus if there is any issue with containers startup, vzlicmon might get stuck as well.
