  • Plesk 8.6 for Linux/Unix


Parallels Plesk Panel (PPP) 8.6 is installed in Virtuozzo container with bridged network interface with assigned IP address. PPP detects this IP address, able to create domain on it, but not able to manage or delete it. In IP addresses management of PPP, status of existing IP address is red with "!" symbol. Output of both - ipmanage command and ifconfig command - has the State "2".



Starting from Virtuozzo 3.0 sp1 a new VETH networking mode was implemented which Plesk 8.6 handles incorrectly. The problem does not happen in latest versions of Parallels Plesk Panel. 


As a workaround  for the issue with Parallels Plesk Panel 8.6 please modify the script "/usr/local/psa/admin/sbin/ifmng":

Backup current script:
# mv /usr/local/psa/admin/sbin/ifmng{,.orig}

Edit this file:
# vi /usr/local/psa/admin/sbin/ifmng

Put the following lines into this file:

if [ "$1" == "-v" -a "$2" ] && ( ip route list table local | egrep -v
'^broadcast| dev (venet0|lo) ' | grep -q " $2 " )
  echo -n 1
  exec $0.orig $@

and set execution flag:
# chmod a+x /usr/local/psa/admin/sbin/ifmng
