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[edit]

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[edit]

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

  $ 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

Using Virtuozzo in the Amazon EC2[edit]

Follow steps in Using Virtuozzo in the Amazon EC2.

Setup on pre-installed Linux distribution[edit]

Yellowpin.svg Note: Pay attention, this installation method currently blocked by broken network after installation - OVZ-6454.

Alternatively, one can install OpenVZ on a pre-installed RPM based Linux distribution. Supported Linux distributions: Cloud Linux 7.*, CentOS 7.*, Scientific Linux 7.* etc

Follow step-by-step instruction below:

Package virtuozzo-release will bring meta information and YUM repositories:

  # yum localinstall http://download.openvz.org/virtuozzo/releases/7.0/x86_64/os/Packages/v/virtuozzo-release-7.0.0-10.vz7.x86_64.rpm

EPEL is a requisite:

  # yum install -y epel-release

Then install mandatory Virtuozzo RPM packages:

  # yum install -y prlctl prl-disp-service vzkernel

See OpenVZ Packages available in various Linux distributions.
