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?
