Default Quota exceeded on CentOS 5.2 when creating OpenVZ container

I've installed CentOS 5.2 on a VirtualBox x86_64 VM and applied the latest OpenVZ patch (028stab059.6). When I run the following command

vzctl create 201 --ostemplate centos-5-x86_64-minimal --config vps.basic

I get a series of disk quota and tar unpack errors starting with this:

tar: ./fastboot: Cannot open: Disk quota exceeded

I have confirmed that disk quotas on the CentOS VM system are turned off. There is plenty of available disk space in /vz, as well as /. I am able to untar the template into /vz/private without problem.

Any suggestions?

My guess is that the uncompressed template is already bigger than the disk space that is configured in /etc/vz/conf/201.conf.

Thanks for the reply.

There isn't any 201.conf. There is ve-vps.basic-conf-sample, which contains the line "DISKSPACE="1048576:1153024".

I copied ve-vps.basic-conf-sample to 201.conf and increased both values tenfold. Running the vzctl create w/o --config vps.basic gives the same error.

Why would config for a VPS container have anything to do with the error being issued from tar?

Hm, not sure what's happening. Is SELinux disabled?

SELinux is disabled.

I ran strace, but there's nothing obvious.
