OpenVz Beta Test

OpenVz Beta Test

FliphostFliphost Member
edited June 2012 in General


We are getting a node in a new location and figured to run a short beta test to get rid of any last bugs I may have missed.

By short Beta I mean it will auto terminate after 7 days. Slots Open: 14

Beta plan Specs

20Gb Disk 1024MB RAM 50Gb Bandwidth 4 Cores on E5-2620

Signup :

If you find anything, either post it here or Open a ticket with the subject of 'Beta' .

Thank you,

    Although by no means a low end box, I'm sure everyone on here will be expecting this:

    root@test:~# ./ CPU model : Intel(R) Xeon(R) CPU E5-2620 0 @ 2.00GHz Number of cores : 4 CPU frequency : 2000.067 MHz Total amount of ram : 1024 MB Total amount of swap : 0 MB System uptime : 4 min, Download speed : (11.2MB/s) I/O speed : 155MB/s

    Seems snappy, granted I'm probably one of the first (only) people on this node right now so that should be expected. Will play with it and see if I can find problems.

    [Edit] When trying to configure OpenVPN, using the same setup I use on all my OpenVZ vps's I came across this error: root@test:~# iptables -t nat -A POSTROUTING -s -j SNAT --to-source <VPSIP> WARNING: Deprecated config file /etc/modprobe.conf, all config files belong into /etc/modprobe.d/. FATAL: Module ip_tables not found. iptables v1.4.8: can't initialize iptables table nat': Table does not exist (do you need to insmod?) Perhaps iptables or your kernel needs to be upgraded.

  • Looks like a kernel issue on the host node. Should be easily rectified.

  • @nunim Thank you, taking a look at it now

    @ErrantWeb Renting

  • jaakkajaakka Member

    Should enabling tun/tap reboot the VPS?

    If it should , please give a simple message that the vps will be rebooted and changes lost.

  • @jaakka Yes enabling it will reboot the VPS

  • @kbar Rebooting from inside the VPS should work now. If you find anything else let me know

  • @eastonch the Solusvm buttons in the client area should be fixed now. Still working on the graphs

    Client Area Graphs should be fixed as well

    Can anyone verify there are no more problems?

  • I have 2 More slots avaliable. If interested in the Beta test, pm me

    Because the beta test is close to coming to a close I thought I would announce: If you were a beta tester and want to keep your server at a reduced rate (Hint: it's a pretty good rate), send me a PM or open a ticket in the client area. Thank you all for helping out with the testing :)

  • @Fliphost PM sent. :'}

  • @eastonch replied :)
