[edit] Compatibility

  • All the cron trickery (used for CT reboot and network cleanup) is removed from this release. If you have something non-standard in /etc/vz/cron/ directory, this is no longer managed by the vz initscript.
  • This release contains a small daemon called vzeventd, which takes care of CT reboot and network cleanup. Details can be found in vzeventd(8) man page. Note that the kernel should support vzevent feature.
  • vzctl set --pci_{add,del} feature needs support from the kernel. Currently this is only available in RHEL6 kernels starting from 042test003.
