  • Applies to:
  • Virtuozzo 6.0
  • Virtuozzo containers for Linux


Unable to migrate a container from PVC to Virtuozzo (former PCS) node:

[root@vps2]# vzmigrate -r no root@ 123 --convert-vzfs
vzmigrate: unrecognized option `--convert-vzfs'
Usage: vzmigrate [OPTIONS] <[user@]destination_HN_address> {CT List}
Utility for migration virtual environments between hardware nodes. 


vzmigrate package is outdated.


For successful migration, all of PVC and Virtuozzo components on both source and destination nodes need to be up to date.

  • To update PVC server use the following command:

    vzup2date -s -m batch install

this will update all Virtuozzo components including vzmigrate.

  • To update PCS server use the following command:

    yum update

Reboot to the latest kernel is needed to complete an update procedure.
