Hello everyone,

May I ask -

If I install a CentOS 6.5 x64 host with OpenVZ x64 kernel (e.g. 2.6.32-042stab090.3), is it possible to run
1. CentOS 5.10 x64 guest ?
2. CentOS 4.9 x86 guest (some legacy application)?

I cannot find a (official) supported list of host OS and guest OS inside openvz.org website.

Thank you very much for your kind experience sharing.

Regards

CentOS 5.x templates run without issues and your x86_64 host should allow for both x86 and x86_64 guests.

As for EOL'ed CentOS 4.x templates, it's quite likely they run, but I'm almost certain that nobody tests them with newer openvz kernels.

The list of supported guest templates is here:
http://openvz.org/Download/templates/precreated

There is typically both a 32 bit and a 64 bit version of each guest OS.
