Hi, all.

How stable is OpenVZ considered on 64-bit platforms, specifically Intel
Xeons? I did some searches on the site, but couldn't find anything solid
on the subject, only mention of "fixes"

I ask because the tech who's setting up our hardware "had a problem with
installing OpenVZ" If OpenVZ on 64-bit is known to be solid, then I'll
prod him for some more specific errors and see whether we can get this to
happen.

OpenVZ is stable on 64bit platforms.
More over it is possible to run x86 32bit VEs on x86-64 OpenVZ if needed.
So if you are having some problems - simlpy report them to us.

Thanks,
Kirill

The OpenVZ kernel parts work very nicely on 64-bit. We have both
32-bit and 64-bit guests on a 64-bit kernel. The userland tools on the
other hand work very poorly with 64-bit userland in the host. The
template generation in particular is broken completely.

The next server I install with OpenVZ will be 64-bit kernel, 32-bit
userland in the host, and 32-bit guests. It will be interesting to see
how well that works.

And Kirill said the same.

This is what I had suspected, I was just surprised to hear the tech report
"a problem" I'll have him get more specific, and may end up hand-walking
him through the installation via email. *smirk*

Thanks a lot, guys.
