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this fresh 7.0 release from iso on a hardware host and while setting up networking I discovered that some docs are outdated.
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 p/_network_options.html

I think the same applies to ice_persistent - you should change the docs or clarify which openvz versions those advices apply to

The command line reference page 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 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:

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...
