hi there, I have been using openvz for about a week now, everything was running just fine when i had it installed, now suddenly all virtual servers are unaccessable and you cant ping/ssh to them, while the host is okay. I can still be able to ssh from the box to them, but not from outside, I tried to bind the ips to the host then unbind them and stop and start the vds's and they worked well for an hour then again suddenly all goes offline, you cant access from or to them. It's really strange having them off and on I tried to check my sysctl.conf and nothing wrong with it compared to your guide, they only worked when I used the centos script in network to bind all the virtual server ips to the host then unbind them back, it works for an hour then again goes all offline, I would appreciate it so much if you can help me as I got 22 virtual servers running for my customers and it's so bad to get that up and down and unstability, thank you.

Hello,

could you please describe your problem in more detail.

1. What's your network configuration? Do you use venet of veth?
- ip a l (from HN)
- ip ro l (from HN)
- ip rule l (from HN)
- arp -n (fron HN when you lose an access to CTs)
- sysctl -a | grep forward (from HN when it stops working)
2. Anything strange in logs or in dmesg?
3. You can use "tcpdump" utility to explore packets behavior.
When it stops working could you please try to ping one of your CTs from external machine. In that moment try to use "tcpdump" utility on the external machine and on th HN. What does it output?

Thank You!

I have similar problem. My VPS obtain IP address via DHCP. I can ping and ssh my VPS some time and then suddenly I can't. TCPDUMP shows incoming messages to but no replies back. There is no resource shortages or any other error logs. Sametime when I can't connect VPS I still can reach main hardware node.

When the problem is on and I go to VPS locally and give dhclient command it sometimes helps..

from HN:
only ICMP echo requests can be seen but no replies.

So the echo replies are lost between VPS and HN.

Hi,

Thank You for the information!

Could you possibly add some info please:

1. "ip a l" (from inside the VE)
2. "ip ro l" (from inside the VE)
3. "ip ru le" (from inside the VE)
4. When you try to ping your VE from the external node please:
"tcpdump -n -i br0" (on NH)
At the same time
"tcpdump -n -i eth0" (inside the VE) (I guess you have got eth0 interface inside VE)

P.S. You should set an IP address only to br0 interface not to the eth0 interface.

Hello,


could you please describe your problem in more detail.

1. What's your network configuration? Do you use venet of veth?
- ip a l (from HN and from inside the VPS)
- ip ro l (from HN and from inside the VPS)
- ip rule l (from HN nad from inside the VPS)
- arp -n (fron HN when you lose an access to CTs)
- sysctl -a | grep forward (from HN when it stops working)
2. Anything strange in logs or in dmesg?
3. You can use "tcpdump" utility to explore packets behavior.
When it stops working could you please try to ping one of your CTs from external machine. In that moment try to use "tcpdump" utility on the external machine and on th HN. What does it output?

Sorry, I don't understand you?
br0 - it's a bridge

Thank You!
