Well, I understand the Basics and the Powers of OpenVZ now.
I found out How Powerful it is and I am really happy with it.
The problem is, how can I enable NFS I have been googling but for some reason It just doesnt work.
I have read the following documents:

<To Learn About NFS in OpenVZ>


Anyhow, after reading that I found out that I can make a NFS share with OpenVZ quite easy.
By using the command
vzctl set 1 --features "nfs:on" --save

I got the error that --features doesnt exist.
So, well..
How can I enable NFS in a VirtualPC thats made by OpenVZ?

Cheers,
Robin

What kernel are you using? You need 2.6.18 or newer for NFS to work.

When I run uname -r in the OpenVZ box Ill get 2.6.18-openvz-686
So yea I run the 2.6.18 kernel and in the normal box Ill get exactly the same.
So, what do I do wrong to enable NFS?

Obviously you have too old vzctl version.
http://wiki.openvz.org/NFS#Prerequisites
"You will need the following software:
1. vzctl version 3.0.13 or higher (do vzctl --version)
2. kernel version 2.6.18-028test006 or higher (2.6.18-028stab* will do), or any recent RHEL5-based or 2.6.20-based kernel."

http://wiki.openvz.org/NFS#Debian_Notes
"Debian Etch still uses vzctl version 3.0.11 and so NFS client support is not yet available. Lenny presently has version 3.0.18."

Ok, damn.. I kinda read over that...
Is there a way to Compile 3.0.18 myself so I can run 3.0.18 instead of 3.0.11? Or will this really require a Complete new Installation..

I expect you can re-build new vzctl, install and use it then.

Hi,

I'm sorry that I meddle in your conversation. Embarassed
You can get vzctl from
http://download.openvz.org/utils/vzctl/3.0.18/src/vzctl-3.0. 18.tar.bz2
(http://openvz.org/download/utils/)

Put "deb http://debian.systs.org/ stable openvz" in your sources.list and you will get vzctl 3.0.18

Ok, my Sources List looks like
deb http://debian.systs.org/ stable openvz

#Lots of Other Deb repositorys with all with a # in front of it..

when I run apt-get update Ill get a error:

So, that doesnt work.. Sad
So Ill just try the Source Package now..


[Edit]

I hope it will work.. THANKS
