Description Marc Perkel 2012-01-13 21:57:12 EST
These are containers that were upgraded from Fedora 14 with yum.

vzctl start 999
Warning: distribution not specified in CT config, using defaults from /etc/vz/dists/default
Starting container ...
Container is unmounted
Container is mounted
Failed to set upstart as init: No such file or directory
Comment 1 Kir Kolyshkin 2012-01-14 02:10:36 EST
I gues you have to manually install upstart.

Get it from here:

F16 case is a real problem though, have to fix it in vzctl...
Comment 3 Marc Perkel 2012-01-16 12:50:05 EST
Yes - that worked.

To upgrade OpenVZ containers using yum to Fedora 15 - after doing the upgrade you have to run:

yum install upstart

That makes Fedora 15 work.
Comment 4 Marc Perkel 2012-01-16 13:07:21 EST
It appears to work for Fedora 16 containers as well. Maybe I can do some upgrades now that will last a few years.
Comment 5 Kir Kolyshkin 2012-01-17 06:11:39 EST
so closing this one as invalid.


If you can work on a small article on wiki telling how to update from F14 to F15 or F16 container that'd be great.
Comment 6 Kir Kolyshkin 2012-01-17 06:19:24 EST
Actually you just give me an idea of making an error message more verbose. Here it is:

Will appear in vzctl-3.0.31

Bug was fixed more than one year ago and there were no complains from reporter after fix. We believe bug fix helped and mark bug as closed.
