Hi,

due to the nature of a setup I have I have to change the IP address of my 
virtual server from inside the virtual server. Better: I want to add a 
cluster IP address to the interface.

Normally I have to do this with
vzctl set 500 --ipaddr 1.2.3.4
from the host server. But:

Is this possible from within the virtual server to setup the ip address? What 
is the parameter
vzctl set 500 --capability net_admin:on
good for? How can I use it?

Thanks for any hint.

Hopefully the Wiki can help you out fully on this one:

http://wiki.openvz.org/Main_Page
  http://wiki.openvz.org/Category:Networking
    http://wiki.openvz.org/Virtual_Ethernet_device
    http://wiki.openvz.org/Virtual_network_device

Looking at both pages will explain the differences.  What
you're wanting is the Virtual Ethernet device..
