Freshly installed a copy of openvz kernel on a fresh debian 7.8 system
booted into it
trying to restore a vzdump from another server.
vzdump does not have the option restore
unable to find a deb for vzrestore can some one help!?
i am using the latest for my Wheezy. Wheezy missing the vzrestore package and shipping a vzdump that does not support restore? (note I can not post links so remove "://" below)
deb http download.openvz.org/debian wheezy main
deb http download.openvz.org/debian wheezy-test main
deb http http.debian.net/debian/ wheezy main contrib non-free
dpkg -l vz\* | grep ^ii

so no way to restore ? do I have to some how find source and compile vzrestore where do I get it? I sorta have a 9 hour restore would like to finish tonight I am guessing that is not going to happen since restoring is not possible. all my searches refer to using vzdump with restore option or they just assume I have or can get with out telling me how to get the vzrestore.
Lost need help or at least some clarity!
