Debian 9 on OpenVZ

Hello,

I noticed that with two different hosts none of the Debian 9 OpenVZ images works. I tried their normal Debian 9 image and the inofficial contributed Debian 9 minimal image (64bit). Sometimes the VPS won't start and sometimes the debian 9 installation only gives a lot of erros while trying to use the VPS. Therefore, I wonder if this could be because of an outdated kernel on the hostsystem or are the images faulty? Anyone ever tried the contributed Debian 9 minimal image (64bit)?

thanks!

    They didn't work for me either. I do the following -
    1) Install Debian 8
    2) make sure it's updated - apt-get upgrade && apt-get dist-upgrade
    3) edit /etc/apt/sources.list to add stretch as the package source
    4) Do another (apt-get upgrade && apt-get dist-upgrade)
    5) Yay enjoy debian 9

  • Strange. I can't really believe that there is no working Debian 9 image for OpenVZ, but apparently a few of my providers don't have them. Btw the kernel version of one of the non-working systems is Linux hostname 2.6.32-042stab126.2 #1 SMP Wed Dec 6 18:08:29 MSK 2017 x86_64 GNU/Linux

    They could be applying security patches via kernelcare.

    So that means that a newer verison wouldn't be shown there, if they would use KernelCare?

    Correct, kernelcare would only show the updated (patched) version on the host-node with the command kcarectl --uname while the uname -r/a etc would show the base (old) kernel version.

  • The last time I tried it, LiteServer has a Debian 9 image for OpenVZ (OpenVZ 6) that works.

    Alpharacks has debain9 template, but it didn't work well. You can see that the vps can be boot up but their is no response on ssh port.

  • OpenVZ is a shitty hack. Now that this has been answered - Debian 9 is too strongly tied to systemd to work without a custom template, which is already based on an unsupported template.

    Correct. Realtime patches don't modify uname data; this data isn't generally exposed to supplicant services.
