  • Virtuozzo containers for Linux 4.0


Virtuozzo for Linux 4.0 does support SLES10 as the host OS, i.e. Virtuozzo can be installed on top of SLES10-based server.

Virtuozzo for Linux 4.0 also supports SLES10 as the guest OS, this means that you may create VEs (Virtual Environments) based on SLES10 OS template.

Also, as a part of Virtuozzo 4.0 installation a special Linux kernel is being installed on a server. This can be the standard RHEL5 or SUSE10 kernel with Virtuozzo virtualization engine. The latter kernel may be installed on servers running SUSE LINUX Enterprise Server 10.

By default RHEL5-based kernel is being installed, to install SLES10 kernel you may use the following command to install Virtuozzo 4.0:
# ./vzinstall --install-sles10

If you installed Virtuozzo 4.0 with the default RHEL5 kernel then you may at any time later install SLES10 kernel, it is a part of Virtuozzo for Linux 4.0 distrib and it is located in the folder 'virtuozzo/RPMS'. You may use the 'rpm' command like this to install SLES10 kernel and corresponding modules:
# rpm -ivh vzkernel-2.6.16-027stab026.1.i686.rpm \

After SLES10 kernel is installed you need to configure system bootloader to use it and reboot the server.

Please note that Virtuozzo virtualization functionality will work regardless of the kernel you choose.
