    Before anyone gets too excited - this isn't the 'big release.' This just adds OpenVZ 7.

    That's pretty big as well, if it's working properly.

    Just curious, does open VZ 7 support 4.x kernel?

    Found: 3.10

    You put more details in your LET Forum reply than in the official release notes, can you even begin to imagine the questions that have gone unanswered here haha?

    The WHMCS module has not been updated, not sure if that is an issue if you are only supporting the bare minimum I guess.

    I will throw up a node later on.

    Now I just feel sad seeing how pathetic Solus is.

    Everyone seems to think I am always furious haha, I'm really not, I don't have anything against Terry personally, we had a good conversation on the phone about 5 - 6 days ago, but ultimately I am a customer and if things are not right... I am not going to pull my punches.

    Maybe I expected to much, please hold the napalm, I just expected the conversion to go through as part of the installer, doing that now and will try again, back in 2014 xen days I guess.

    Added support for OpenVZ on Virtuozzo Linux 7

    Only paid version? or also OpenVZ 7 ?

    What about backups? because the backup module is only included in Virtuozzo (paid version).
    Are you going to develop your own backup method?

    Problem found..

    For some reason solusvm are putting the svmstack-fpm in to sysV so obviously it wont start and they did not think to start it after install.

    Same issue I reported with new KVM installs on CentOS 7 about 4 months ago.. still unresolved.

    simple fix:

    ]# service svmstack-fpm restart
    Gracefully shutting down php-fpm warning, no pid file found - php-fpm is not running ?
    Starting php-fpm done

    I tell you what @OnApp_Terry your internal QA team are absolutely shite! its impossible not to run in to this issue if they even attempted to do a fresh install, so they obviously just green lighted everything anyway without testing it at all.

  • AnthonySmithAnthonySmith Top Provider
    edited March 2017

    Next issue, VZ6 templates are not compatible with virtuozzo 7 and certainly not backwards compatible, solusvm does not have any way to handle this it seems and naming conventions are identical and there is only 1 set of templates for uses to pick from and no way to distinguish between them.

    @OnApp_Terry this seems like a huge oversight?

    That's it for my patience.. towel thrown in someone else take over.

    What if someone needs to run both legacy OpenVZ on some Hypervisors and OpenVZ 7 on some ? I heard the new tpls are not backwards compatible (though I haven't tested myself so this might not be 100% accurate)

    Well then they will not work on vz legacy /simfs based nodes will they?

    And how on earth is that supposed to work with the template manager in solusvm?

    example: debian-8.0-x86_64-minimal.tar.gz < this is the vz7 template shipped with the vz7 install, it wont work on VZ6, so I add it to the template manager in solusvm for users on the vz7 node.

    Now I have to give it a different name from the current debian 8 template, so now current end users on vz6 nodes see 2 debian 8 templates, if they reinstall it becomes a coin toss depending on what they pick.

    Maybe I am missing something, please correct me if I am?

    These are all the really obvious things that really need to be handled in the documentation when you did the release instead of the 7 or 8 words you used.

    well I just tried deploying a container through solusvm/virtuozzo 7 using a vz7 template, got a green light from solusvm, created successfully, even gave me the root password etc in the web UI, container never came online, further checking on the host node, it was never created to begin with, not even the config was created.

    I am tired of being 'that guy' so I am just going to revisit it in a month when everyone else does the leg work.

    What a disastrous release, you guys should be embarrassed, there is absolutely no way this has been tested before release, certainly not from start to finish or by anyone that can tie their own shoe laces.
