i tried to play with checkpointing
http://wiki.openvz.org/Checkpointing_and_live_migration

first time i made dump and restore on same host and all was ok.


sudo vzctl start 2
sudo vzctl chkpnt 2 --suspend
sudo vzctl chkpnt 2 --dump --dumpfile /home/dagr/2.dump
sudo vzctl chkpnt 2 --kill
sudo vzctl restore 2 --undump --dumpfile /home/dagr/2.dump
sudo vzctl restore 2 --resume

VPS - was default centos - inside sendmail processes .

after that i entered VPS - run this commands
screen
top -d 1
// then detached ssh client - and after relogining i saw screen and top procceses inside vps - it was ok .
then repeated all above with chkpointing and got at the end

[dagr@mydbtest ~]$ sudo vzctl restore 2 --undump --dumpfile /home/dagr/2.dump

Did you try to restore it two times?
You can restore VPS only one time as VPS file system changes after VPS is restored.

Can you please post here full list of commands before you got this error.

of course i didnt tried to restore it 2 times
here is list of commands

sudo vzctl start 2
sudo vzctl chkpnt 2 --suspend
sudo vzctl chkpnt 2 --dump --dumpfile /home/dagr/2.dump
sudo vzctl chkpnt 2 --kill
sudo vzctl restore 2 --undump --dumpfile /home/dagr/2.dump
sudo vzctl restore 2 --resume
sudo vzctl stop 2

sudo vzctl start 2

<<
here i entered vps and launched screen and top -d 1 inside it
then detached (just dropped connection)
after such trick you are able to enter vps again , run "screen -r" and you get to same console where top -d 1
<<
and after that: (i write successfull commands without output)

sudo vzctl chkpnt 2 --suspend
sudo vzctl chkpnt 2 --dump --dumpfile /home/dagr/2.dump
sudo vzctl chkpnt 2 --kill
[dagr@mydbtest ~]$ sudo vzctl restore 2 --undump --dumpfile /home/dagr/2.dump

What kernel did you use in your experiments?
If you compiled it yourself please post here .config.

After so much time, I'm having the exact same problem using kernel 2.6.18-028stab027.
Did the OP find the cause of the problem? Does anybody have suggestions on how to solve it?
I can provide a bunch of dumps that cause the problem, if you want to reproduce it. I'll be glad to provide you with all the info that is necessary to track down the problem.
Thanks for your help.
