  • Virtuozzo containers for Windows


When opening Share and Storage Management inside containers running Windows Server 2008, the initialization of Virtual Disk Service (VDS) may fail.

The following error appears inside the container's Event Viewer:

The provider failed to load. Error(8004241C).
VDS fails to launch provider {A86AE501-EF73-4C8D-827E-98BA5046B05F}. Error code: 8004241C@0200000C 


To solve the issue, it is necessary to enable SCSI support for the container. Before using Share and Storage Management inside the container, run this command:

vzctl set CTID --scsi yes --save

And reboot the container.

Replace "CTID" with the numeric identifier of the container.

NOTE: Share and Storage Management works only for additional disks
