According to the error message, there is some VZFS (Virtuozzo filesystem) inconsistency inside a VE running on the node (which could happen, for example, due to an unclean server shutdown). Usually in such error messages, the inode # and COW (copy-on-write) filename are also reported. All COW files are usually located in /vz/private/VEID/cow/, so it should be possible to locate the problem VE using just, for example, this command:
# ls -l /vz/private/*/cow/NAME
(where NAME is the filename reported in the error message)

To fix the problem, the "vzfsutil" utility should be executed against the unmounted (and stopped) VE private area:
# vzfsutil --call=move --oall=do -t /vz/template /vz/private/VEID
(where VEID is the ID of the problem VE shown by the "ls" command in the previous section)
