    Tutorial:
    http://www.howtoforge.com/installing-and-using-openvz-on-ubuntu-10.04-p2

    Code:
    [email protected]:~$ ls /vz/template/cache
    ubuntu-10.04-minimal_10.04_amd64.tar.gz  ubuntu-10.04-x86_64.tar.gz
    
    [email protected]:/home/reggin# vzctl create 102 --ostemplate ubuntu-10.04-minimal_10.04_amd64 --config basic
    Unable to get full ostemplate name for ubuntu-10.04-minimal_10.04_amd64
    Creating container private area (ubuntu-10.04-minimal_10.04_amd64)
    /usr/local/lib/vzctl/scripts/vps-create: line 31:  4220 Killed                  tar -C "$VE_PRVT" ${TAR_OPT} ${OPT} -xf "$PRIVATE_TEMPLATE"
    vps-create ERROR: Error in tar --numeric-owner -z -xf /var/lib/vz/template/cache/ubuntu-10.04-minimal_10.04_amd64.tar.gz
    Received signal:  9 in /usr/sbin/vzquota
    Killed
    Also right after this my server gives the $ prompt like usual but will freeze after any command is given and must be restarted manually (physical restart button).

    This causes the 'vzctl set 101 --onboot yes --save' and 'vzctl start 101' to return errors and presumably means I can't continue the tutorial.

    I'm quite clueless as to what this error code means or how to get around it. Just for the record, I am trying to put a few (no more than 8) vps on a single dedicated server. If anyone knows a tutorial better suited for my project, please tell me.

    Can you run
    Code:
    tar --numeric-owner -z -xf /var/lib/vz/template/cache/debian-5.0-amd64-minimal.tar.gz
    manually on the shell? Do you get any error messages?

    Sorry it took so long:

    No error message? :confused:

    Maybe it is a problem with missing drive space. What's the output of
    Code:
    df -h
    ?

    Are there any errors in your logs?

    I just remembered that my laptop's motherboard required Virtualization to be manually enabled. On that note, I checked my desktop board if anything similar occured. I found a setting I had not recognized called "no execute memory protection technology". My good friend Google lead me to believe that hypervisors hate that, so I disabled it. The vzctl create command worked only after I redid most of the tutorial.

    Code:
    [email protected]:/home/reggin# vzctl create 103 --ostemplate debian-5.0-amd64-minimal --config basic
    Unable to get full ostemplate name for debian-5.0-amd64-minimal
    Creating container private area (debian-5.0-amd64-minimal)
    Performing postcreate actions
    Container private area was created
    Thank you for your time.
