Hi,

Did you try to read the wiki on wiki.openvz.org? The information there is sufficient enough to answer all your questions at this stage of your project. There are even articles how to make a VZ container high-available.

/vz/private/{ctid}/ is the permanent home for the container filesystem.

/vz/root/{ctid}/ contents are there when the container is running.

Debian likes to put things under /var/lib/vz/ and I think they just make /vz/ a symlink to it.

A container = 1) It's config file (/etc/vz/conf/{ctid}.conf) and it's filesystem /vz/private/{ctid}. There is also a quota file in /var/vzquota/quota.{ctid}. These locations may vary from distro to distro as previously mentioned.

Kir announced ploop 1.0 today... but the kernel and tools aren't available quite yet... but coming soon... for those who want to put a container on a disk image file. See this wiki page and the PDF of the presentation about ploop: http://wiki.openvz.org/Ploop

ploop will be an addition and not replace what we have now... it'll be an option for those who want it.

TYL,
