I am not able to create containers on centos 7. Centos7 with openz uses:

prlctl create 101 --ostemplate centos-7-x86_64 --vmtype ct

however it fails to create every time.

The servers base OS is CentOS 7 64-bit.

We tried rolling back to CentOS 6 for the container...

[root@hw001 cache]# prlctl create 101 --ostemplate centos-6-x86_64-minimal --vmtype ct
Creating the Virtuozzo Container...
Failed to register the CT: Operation failed. Unable to get appcache tarball name for f4cafbc9-2102-4519-944e-a5facf772354.conf with ostemplate

We we installed CentOOS 6.7 on the server and had no problems.

Have you install the vzpkg template for centos-7 and create an os cache?

Please post "vzpkg list"

It shows no output. I am relaying information from the server management company.

Could you pleaase tell me where are the instructions for creating a CentOS 7 64-bit template for container creation? I don't think I'm typing the correct search terms in Google.

I used to have to do this on Virtuozzo years ago and have forgotten the process. The gz's are on the server:

-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 133M Aug 7 04:19 centos-7-x86_64-minimal.tar.gz
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 203M Aug 7 04:18 centos-7-x86_64.tar.gz

ASs I recall:

I am dealing with Deer Valley Data and they are doing everything right! They appear to have the most current kernel installed as weell.

[root@hw001 ~]# uname -a
Linux hw001.servers.net 3.10.0-123.1.2.vz7.5.29 #1 SMP Fri Jul 24 18:45:12 MSK 2015 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

or is there an Enterprise kernel that gives me full access to memory - an issue for another time.

Here's the last output.

So I have ensured that the cache has been created here:

[root@hw001 vz]# vzpkg create appcache --ostemplate centos-7-x86_64 --apptemplate devel
Can not find 'centos-7-x86_64' EZ os template

Nothing to do

As you can see it says it is already installed "Package centos-7-x86_64-ez-7.0.0-5.vz7.noarch already installed and latest version"

Then trying to create the container with the basic config:

[root@hw001 vz]# vzctl create 101 --ostemplate centos-7-x86_64 --config basic
Unable to get appcache tarball name for ve-basic.conf-sample with ostemplate centos-7-x86_64
Destroying Container private area: /vz/private/101
Warning: Container is in old data format, unregistration skipped
Container private area was destroyed
Creation of Container private area failed
[root@hw001 vz]#

Also here is the basic config:

[root@hw001 conf]# ls
networks_classes ve-confixx.conf-sample ve-vswap.2048MB.conf-sample ve-vswap.512MB.conf-sample vps.vzpkgtools.conf-sample

We found that the file system of CentOS 7 was not compatible with OpenVZ 7. We had to use EXT4 when installing. After doing that we were able to create containers.

Could you explain why this is? I sure appreciate it. Thank you very much.

the default type for storing the container (ct) data is on/in a ploop device (-> https://wiki.openvz.org/Ploop/Getting_started )
and the reqirements for ploop are the filesystem on which the data is located must be formated with ext4 or use nfsv3

btw have you any log entries found in /var/log/vzctl.log detect some kind of issue?

found an issue:
on vzpkg create a temporary ploop image is create in directory /var/tmp - if underlaying filesystem is not an ext4 this creation failed with this error, too:

You started us looking and that is what we found as well! The documentation to Ploop made it clear that the FS needed to be EXT4. Thank you for the heads up!!!
