There are many ways for a hardware node owner to login into a VE or execute a command in VE context.


# vzctl exec 101 /bin/ls

will execute '/bin/ls' command inside VE #101.


# vzctl enter 101

will run a shell in VE #101.

3. If you need to log into VE #101 as root by SSH you can add a user with UID=0 to /vz/root/101/etc/passwd and set a password for this user using

# vzctl exec 101 passwd username
