I have a container (Virtual Machine) running on an OpenVZ server and I would like to attach another ploop disk to this container.
The / mount point of the container is already configured as ploop drive and I would like to add another ploop disk of 100GB to the running container, Is it possible? if so, how is it done?
Our office is using a Proxmox Virtual Environment (v. 1.9) to run servers. It is capable of running either OpenVZ templates or full KVM installations.
After an initial attempt and failure to successfully install software for evaluation in an Ubuntu 12.04 server running as an OpenVZ container, I decided to try installing it in a "normal" server installation in VirtualBox on my laptop.
OpenVZ: Mounting Host Devices/Partitions/Directories In A Container With Bind Mounts (Debian/Ubuntu)
Sometimes you are in a situation where you need to mount a hard
drive, partiiton or directory from the OpenVZ host inside an OpenVZ
container - for example, you add a fast SSD to the host and want to put
your container's MySQL databases on it to make MySQL faster.
I have a OpenVZ container running Debian 6 on my server. After every restart of the container I have to manually start the Apache2 web server using its init script. In the error log I can't find any useful information.
I am thinking about using OpenVZ container or LXC for web app on CentOS. Do I need to reserve (leave free) some CPU and RAM for host OS for other processes, networking etc. or I can allocate everything to container?
I am relatively new to running virtual machines / OpenVZ containers so if I have miss understood something please let me know.
I currently have Ubuntu 14.04.1 installed straight to a partition on my server. My intention is to completely rebuild and restructure my server (which could take some time) without removing the installation I currently have.
