Service container creation fails. The following error is displayed:

Failed to invoke cscript "C:\Program Files (x86)\SWsoft\Virtuozzo\VZAgent\\insta
ll\configureAgentOnHN.vbs" --debug --password 7b6868b7-52d5-4d19-ae94-1c6636f8a3
See log located at 'C:\vzlog\VZToolsCfg\VZAgentInSve.msi.postinstallHint.log' fo
r more details. Creation of Service Container is failed

Looking to C:\vzlog\VZToolsCfg\VZAgentInSve.msi.postinstallHint.log thw following error is observed:

Deleting service 'VZAOp'
ERROR [16]: Failed to delete service 'VZAOp'


Most likely Services.msc snap-in is open.  During Service Container recreation, VZAOP(VZAGENT) service is to be recreated, but due to opened MMC service simply is marked for deletion until MMC is closed. As it does not happen automatically, SCT recreation fails because VZAOP service cannot be deleted.


Close open MMC snap-in and run SCT recreation again.
