I need to update a specific package (e.g. 'bind') in all containers in a batch. How do I achieve it?


The following command forcibly updates 'bind' from remote repositories in container 101:

# vzpkg update -r 101 -p bind

To apply it for all running containers on a local node:

# for ctid in $(vzlist -Ho ctid) ; do vzpkg update -r $ctid -p bind ; done

vzpkg update
