If I try to reboot a VE using "reboot", it never will back again if I don't log in to HN and run "vzctl XXX restart" manually. I've searched on this forum and everyone says about a "reboot" file. When I reboot a VE, this file isn't created, but the root directory of the VE has a "halt" file. So, what can I do to fix this?

So this is the problem. Host system scripts that auto-restart a container expects 'reboot' file to be present in container's root directory. If there is no such file, no autoreboot will be performed.

So the question is: what OS template do you use?

I had 3 VEs in a HN.
One with Fedora 7, one with Fedora 8 and one with CentOS 4.5

All of them have this problem.

Can you check (in all of your containers) that there is a script called /etc/rc.d/rc6.d/S00vzreboot (or /etc/rc6.d/S00vzreboot)? It should be there and it should create the "reboot mark" (i.e. the file /reboot inside a container).

Also note that "reboot check" is initiated every 5 minutes (from cron) so please wait long enough.

BTW do you have cron daemon running on host?

edit with you favorit editor /etc/init.d/reboot.sh
vi /etc/init.d/reboot.sh


and add ">//reboot" string
that's all

# Distributed under the terms of the GNU General Public License v2
>//reboot
opts="-dpk"
[ "${RC_DOWN_INTERFACE}" = "yes" ] && opts="${opts}i"

/sbin/reboot "${opts}" 2>/dev/null

# hmm, if the above failed, that's kind of odd ...
# so let's force a reboot
/sbin/reboot -f
