vz - global OpenVZ configuration file
This is global configuration file for OpenVZ. It consists of lines in
All parameter names and values are case-sensitive. Quotes surrounding
value are required if value contains spaces, and are optional
otherwise. Extra spaces are not allowed. All unrecognized lines will be
This parameter can be set to yes or no, and used by
/etc/init.d/vz script. In case it is not set to yes, nothing
will be done to boot up OpenVZ on this node.
Set the directory to put lock files to.
Value of this parameter sets cpuunits for CT0 (host system).
Enables or disables logging. This parameter can be set to yes or
no, default is yes.
Set location of log file, default is /var/log/vzctl.log.
Set the logging level. The more number is, the more information
will be logged.
Set the output verbosity. Default is 0.
If the value of this parameter is set to yes, no attempt to load
OpenVZ kernel modules is made in vz initscript. This is helpful
on systems which have OpenVZ-specific stuff compiled into the
kernel (i. e. not as modules).
Disk quota parameters
In case the value of this parameter is set to no, all disk quota
operations are disabled.
This parameter is used by /etc/init.d/vz start script. In case
the value of this parameter is set to yes, all containers with
incorrectly shutdown quota state are started without quota
check, and after all containers will be started, those marked
containers are restarted (to fix quotas).
Network interface parameters
This parameter specifies the network device name which ip
address will used for source ip. If on HN configured > 1 network
interfaces and needed to specify the source ip address, set
corresponding device. By default takes the first in network
Controls on which interfaces to add/remove ARP records for a
container IP, also which interfaces to use to query/announce
ARP. If this is set to detect, the right network interface (the
one which is in the same subnet as a CT IP) will be chosen
automatically. Any other value restores old (as of vzctl 3.0.19
or older) behavior, when all the possible interfaces were used.
Value of this parameter is a directory in which all container
template data are stored.
Defaults for containers
Below parameters are defaults for containers, and gets overwritten by
parameters in vps.conf(5) container configuration file.
Value of this parameter is the directory which serves as
container root mount point. Value must contain string $VEID, it
gets substituted with actual numeric CT ID.
Value of this parameter is the directory in which all the files
and directories specific to that container are stored. Value
must contain string $VEID, it gets substituted with actual
numeric CT ID.
Specified default configuration file on create action,
corresponds to --config option.
Any other parameter that appears in per-PE configuration file
vps.conf(5) can be also set here. Still, it is recommended to keep
TEMPLATE, VE_PRIVATE and VE_ROOT in this configuration files, and all
the other container related parameters in per-container configuration
