hello,

I'm new to openvz, I have installed this fresh 7.0 release from iso on a hardware host and while setting up networking I discovered that some docs are outdated.

https://wiki.openvz.org/Using_private_IPs_for_Hardware_Nodes
this works unless you try to persist settings. instructions rely on vznetcfg and its supplementary files which seem to be gone and unsupported in 7.0. I have discovered that all bridge-related settings should be instead applied with prlctl since set --netif_add now accepts --ipadd and related settings documented at https://docs.openvz.org/openvz_command_line_reference.webhel p/_network_options.html

I think the same applies to https://openvz.org/Virtual_Ethernet_device#Making_a_veth-dev ice_persistent - you should change the docs or clarify which openvz versions those advices apply to

The command line reference page https://docs.openvz.org/openvz_command_line_reference.webhel p/_network_options.html itself contains an error (or is this a prlctl bug??). Adding --host_ifname to command line triggers error Unrecognized option: --host_ifname - is there a mistype is option name maybe? Didn't figure this out yet

Yeah, the vast majority of the wiki is for OpenVZ Legacy. For the time being, read the docs at http://docs.openvz.org as they are all specific to the 7 release.

Please note that private addressing is not currently supported (see the Readme doc).

Yep, you are quite right: that OpenVZ wiki applies to OpenVZ 6, i've made a note at the top of the page.

And "--host_ifname" in the "prlctl set" description also seems as some leftover, i've filed a bug to correct this:
https://bugs.openvz.org/browse/OVZ-6794

Thank you!

(If you find more incorrectnesses, don't hesitate to file issues!)


If your problem is solved - please, report it!
It's even more important than reporting the problem itself...
