Is there another way of stopping a VE not using "vzctl stop VE"?
I'm asking this, because somethig happened in my mail server that crashed it. I couldn't ping the server, and "vzctl enter VE" was not responding. It was frozen...
So, I tried to stop it with "vzctl stop VE" but, after a while, he answered "time out".
I had no other way of stopping it, so I tried to shutdown the hardware node, but he was not able to stop the mail VE, so, I had to pull down the button... Sad
This issue happened twice and I'm hoping it wouldn't happen again.
But if it would happen, what can I do to avoid shuting down everything?
Is there a way to force a frozen VE to shutdown?

Note: I'm using vzctl-3.0.16-1, kernel 2.6.18-ovz28stab035.1-smp and Centos-4.5-x86_64
