Is it really that simple? I was always under the impression the process was much more invovled than that.Personally, I find the easiest way to make an Openvz template is to load up a base template in Solusvm and install it onto a dev vps.
Then make any modifications that you feel like and then click on the "create template" button in the admin panel on the details of the virtual server.
It will then as you to make a file name which it creates from the files of the VPS you edited and places it in /vz/templates/cache .
I was unfortunately never able to get templates from your site to work, otherwise I would.
I get a 403 Forbidden on this and additionally I can not find a template like this by just browsing the site.
Does this method strip out the ip numbers from the template?I do the following and it works fine for me:
- download precreated from openvz website
- load it up in a test box (or production...really doesn't matter)
- customize container
- vzdump --compress 6969
- move from /vz/dump to /vz/template/cache
- vzctl create 6969 --ostemplate debian-6.0-i386-gloo_vnstat --config basic (basically just omit tar.gz)
