VE fails to initialize network during startup.

The following error is displayed:

C:\Documents and Settings\vzsupport>vzctl start 103
Starting VPS ...
Reading adapter configuration failed, Err=0x00000057 (Vps=103)
Failed to initialize network for VPS 103


Most likely, the VE is configured to use the network adapter with the network ID <value>, but such network ID is not specified for any of the present network adapters.


Open Virtuozzo Network Configuration, Start, Programs, SWsoft, Virtuozzo, Configure Network, then set the Network ID for the Virtuozzo network adapter (by double-clicking on the adapter and setting the Network ID). Then start the CT.

Alternatively, you can set the correct Network ID using the command line tool as follows:

vzctl update 100 --network vznet1

(where vznet1 is the real Network ID)
