This document briefly describes the steps needed to install Virtuozzo Linux distribution on your machine.

There are a few ways to install Virtuozzo:

Bare-metal installation

OpenVZ project builds its own Linux distribution with both hypervisor and container virtualization. It is based on our own Linux distribution, with the additions of our custom kernel, OpenVZ management utilities, QEMU and Virtuozzo installer. It is highly recommended to use OpenVZ containers and virtual machines with this Virtuozzo installation image. See Virtuozzo. Download installation ISO image.

Using Virtuozzo in the Vagrant box

Vagrant is a tool for creating reproducible and portable development environments. It is easy to run environment with Virtuozzo using Vagrant:

  • Download and install Vagrant
  • Download and install Virtualbox, Parallels Desktop, VMware Fusion or VMware Workstation. Please note that you need to enable nested virtualization support in your hypervisor to run virtual machines on Virtuozzo 7. VirtualBox does not officially support nested virtualization now.
  • Download Virtuozzo box:

$ vagrant init OpenVZ/Virtuozzo-7.0

  • Run box:

$ vagrant up --provider virtualbox

and in case of VMware hypervisor:

$ vagrant up --provider vmware_desktop

and in case of Parallels hypervisor:

$ vagrant up --provider parallels

  • Attach to console:

$ vagrant ssh

  • Use vagrant/vagrant to login inside box
