I see that you installed OpenVZ 7 on top of CentOS 7.
That would solve the problem I have with not being able to install packages like nrpe, nagios-plugins, among others using yum.

I've installed it with the OpenVZ 7 iso. It works, but you can't install any CentOS 7 packages.
Or is there some repo magic I can do to emulate CentOS 7 and pull the packages in?

I'm migrating to OpenVZ 7 from CentOS 6 with vzkernel and building out a new server.
I want to install base packages of nagios, nrpe, bacula and a few others that are standard centos 6/7 packages. How can I install them?

I see in /etc/redhat-release it shows:

Virtuozzo Linux release 7.8

So does that mean that it's based on CentOS 7.8?
Can I muck with the repos and spoof CentOS 7.8?
Are there any repos that have some basic monitoring/backup support specifically for OpenVZ?

Thanks!

Hi.

Yes, Virtuozzo 7 distro is based on CentOS 7 distro.
So if you miss some packages in Virtuozzo repo, you can add CentOS / epel repos and install packages.
And in 99% cases it will work.

Note: you better disable external repos after you install required packages,
because if you leave them enabled and some day later run "yum update" and in CentOS / epel repo will be
a package of newer version than we have in Virtuozzo repo and it will substitute a package which we in VZ distro have enhanced,
well, something might get broken.


If you problem is solved - please, report it!
It's even more important than reporting the problem itself...
