Other than Webmin/Usermin, what control panels work properly on OpenVZ?

I'm currently testing ISPConfig (and modified my FC4 template to install all required parts), and it works, however, I cant include the software in the template (well, I can...), as it has many config lines that want the server hostname, which wont be the same as the original. I'm working with them to see if there's something I can do so I can just make the vps, with ISPConfig installed.

Back to the point at hand. These will be for light weight VPSs, as a lower cost alternative to our normal VPS packages. I'd like suggestions on what is good, and easy for hosting newbies to navigate, in terms of panels.

Webmin is good for those who know what their doing, but a lot of customers even break their servers running Plesk. So I'd like something "pretty" (ie: simple GUI), and that will install on OpenVZ without much hassle.

Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

This could be easily overcome by having a "first-start" script which will executing during first start of a freshly-created VPS and do all those final config changes related to hostname etc. (this is usually done with sed or sometimes perl). The last thing what this script should do is to exclude itself from the start.

The only restriction of that approach is you have to set hostname and other involved parameters before the first VPS start. In any case, you have the script to run in a VPS which will set up all this stuff.

The other problem could be to find all those places you need to change -- and more often than not this is not really a problem.

As for the control panels for end users - the good one I've seen is VZPP for VPS owner interface - it's indeed very lightweight and easy even for novice users. Sorry to say this is not for free and currently available only as a part of Virtuozzo.

Yeah, for our main VPS offerings we have VZPP for the enduser, and of course VZMC for the support staff.

The big advantage I've found for OpenVZ over Virtuozzo is the easy of modifying the templates, which is a tad more complex with Virtuozzo (other than the 3.0RC).

Yes, but as you mentioned correctly VZ3.0 is shipped with the similar templates technology. So it is not an advantage.
OpenVZ was a first step towards such templates actually.

Frankly - no how. Virtuozzo panels come with Virtuozzo only. They are not a separate product.
