Freshly installed a copy of openvz kernel on a fresh debian 7.8 system
booted into it

trying to restore a vzdump from another server.

vzdump does not have the option restore
unable to find a deb for vzrestore can some one help!?

i am using the latest for my Wheezy. Wheezy missing the vzrestore package and shipping a vzdump that does not support restore? (note I can not post links so remove "://" below)

cat   /etc/apt/sources.list.d/openvz-rhel6.list
deb http wheezy main
deb http wheezy-test main
deb http wheezy main contrib non-free

dpkg -l vz\* | grep ^ii

ii  vzdump                                           1.2.6-3                    all          OpenVZ backup scripts

so no way to restore ? do I have to some how find source and compile vzrestore where do I get it? I sorta have a 9 hour restore would like to finish tonight I am guessing that is not going to happen since restoring is not possible. all my searches refer to using vzdump with restore option or they just assume I have or can get with out telling me how to get the vzrestore.

Lost need help or at least some clarity!

I am unable to see

ok vzdump does not support restore anymore you have to type out
/usr/sbin/vzrestore ??

I manage to get it working. it looks like it was installed . possibly by the vzdump I installed. not clear on this.
