A cached Virtuozzo containers template (file.efd) should be deployed on a Virtuozzo containers server in order to use it in one or more VEs. Deployment is similar to archive extraction. A template can be deployed on the Node and added into the list of available templates from the Command Line Interface (CLI).

Plesk templates can be downloaded here


Copy template.efd to your %VZROOT%\Templates\__cache directory(Replace "%VZROOT%" with the actual folder path to Virtuozzo data, "C:\vz" or other path specified during PVC installation). From a Command Prompt window, issue the following command:

vzpkgdeploy -i template

Note: Use the filename of the template without the .efd extension when running the vzpkgdeploy command.

Real-life example:

panel- 20130805.08
windows_2008r2_ent_sp1-6.1.7601 20110628
panel- 20120609.18

C:\>vzpkgdeploy -i panel-
Installing template panel-
Command 'vzpkgdeploy' is successfully finished
