Hi everybody,

we have a server runnning openvz with ip-address: 83.243.81.XX. The problem is we just aquired half an ip-block with ip-addresses from to gw We wanted to give some of these ips to our VZs. Just adding a new VZ like this:

vzctl create 108
vzctl set 108 --hostname --save
vzctl set 108 --ipadd --save
vzctl set 108 --nameserver XX.XX.XX.XX --save

did not work out. We also tried to add a new IP-address as alias eth-iface to the HWNode. But also with no success.

Does anyone know how to do this correctly? By the way we use venet for openvz.

Hello, you should not assign the new ips to your HN. You did add them to the VE correctly. what is the HN's default route or the route for route -n

if the route for 78.127/25 is not specified or the default route will not route packets from 78.127/25, you need to add a route for this subnet. after you do this, the correct router will be receiving your outbound packets.
