Virtuozzo: Failed to enter Container
ISSUE: I am unable to enter into one of the vps inside virtuozzo node using “vzctl enter CTID” command. Getting the error “enter failed. Failed to enter container”.
root@virtuozzo# vzctl enter 1330 enter failed Failed to enter Container 1330 root@virtuozzo#
REASON : VZFS symlinks of the Container private area to system and application templates are somehow corrupted.
FIX: Use the vzctl recover CTID option to re-write the original symlinks to the Container private area.
root@virtuozzo# vzctl recover 1330 ... ... root@virtuozzo#
As per the parallels documentation the recover option doesn’t touch the user data files, so there is no problem of data missing.
