I just installed openvz virtuozzo 7 in a centos7 VM (in virtualbox, only add a repo virtuozzo/releases/7.0/x86_64/os/)

I download precreated template from /template/precreated/debian-8.0-x86_64-minimal.tar.gz

Place them in the /vz/template/cache

However, when I run vzctl --verbose create 101 --ostemplate debian-8.0-x86_64-minimal it can't create containers from cached template

I googled it but can't find a solution (even not found a similar error)

PLEASE HELP !!! Crying or Very Sad

Hi,
I have same problem with kernel 3.10.0-123.1.2.vz7.5.25 (OpenVZ installed to fresh installed CentOS 7 current) on two types of different dedicated hardware (Intel and AMD CPU).

I haven't found a solution yet. I guess the new version of openvz may change its mechanism in creating containers from templates, but there are no documents available.

You don't need to use old precreated templates for OpenVZ.
Just run something like 'prlctl create 100 --ostemplate centos-6-x86_64 --vm-type=ct' and prlctl will cache OS template for you.
CentOS OS templates installed by default (as far as I remember):
[root@vz ~]# rpm -qa | grep ez
centos-6-x86_64-ez-7.0.0-1.vz7.noarch
centos-5-x86-ez-7.0.0-2.vz7.noarch

You can found other OS templates in Virtuozzo yum repository:

centos-5-x86-ez.noarch : Centos 5 (for ix86) Template set
centos-6-x86_64-ez.noarch : Centos 6 (for AMD64/Intel EM64T) Template set
centos-7-x86_64-ez.noarch : Centos 7 (for AMD64/Intel EM64T) Template set
debian-8.0-x86_64-ez.noarch : Debian 8.0 (for AMD64/Intel EM64T) Template set

More templates are coming.

We plan to publish Virtuozzo 7 documentation about template management soon, now published only User guide and README. See docs.openvz.org
If you want to know more about templates please refer to commercial Virtuozzo documentation.

P.S. and sorry for later answer

I think this is caused by invalid value of DISKINODES set in your config.
