Hi guys,
We were able to successfully install/reinstall CTs with the Fedora 15 - both 32-bit and x64 on a few hardware node, but it stopped working.

The problem is that after the VPS create, only 1 process starts, and there are some errors when trying to start services inside the container.

I've also downloaded the latest fedora-15 templates from OpenVZ website, but without any luck.

[root@node log]# vzctl --verbose create 66103 --ostemplate fedora-15-x86_64 --hostname vpsXXX --config basic
Looking for /vz/template/cache/fedora-15-x86_64.tar

[root@node log]# vzctl --verbose start 66103

[root@node log]# vzlist -a | grep 66103
66103 1 running - vpsXXX


Inside the container there's the weird part:
[root@vpsXXX /]# service network start
FATAL: Could not load /lib/modules/2.6.32-274.7.1.el5.028stab095.1/modules.dep: No such file or directory

ls /lib/modules/ returns empty

[root@node log]# cat /etc/vz/osrelease.conf

fedora-13 2.6.18

fedora-15 2.6.32
debian-6.0 2.6.32

[root@node log]# cat /proc/sys/kernel/virt_osrelease

[root@node log]# uname -a

As we're using k-splice, the actual kernel version is slightly newer:

[root@node log]# uptrack-uname -a
Linux 2.6.18-308.el5.028stab099.3 #1 SMP Wed Mar 7 15:56:00 MSK 2012 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

[root@node log]# cat /etc/redhat-release
CentOS release 5.8 (Final)

[root@node log]# rpm -qa | grep vz

and the server is up-to-date.

Any ideas on how to fix this, or suggestions? I couldn't find anything relevant on the internet.

Just saw this post...

Perhaps I'm stating the obvious, but this isn't supposed to work. How did you manage to run Fedora 15 container on a 2.6.18-xxx kernel in the first place? AFAIK, Fedora 15 containers really do need a 2.6.32-xxx openvz kernel.
