NAME

       vz.conf - global OpenVZ configuration file

SYNOPSIS

       /etc/vz/vz.conf

DESCRIPTION

       This is the global configuration file for OpenVZ.  It consists of lines
       in the form

       PARAMETER="value"

       All parameter names and values are case-sensitive.  Quotes  surrounding
       value   are  required  if  value  contains  spaces,  and  are  optional
       otherwise. Extra spaces are not allowed. All unrecognized lines will be
       ignored.

   Global parameters
       VIRTUOZZO=yes|no
              This  parameter can be set to yes or no, and used by the vz init
              script. In case it is not set to yes, nothing will  be  done  to
              boot up OpenVZ on this node.

       LOCKDIR=directory
              Set the directory to put lock files to.

       VE0CPUUNITS=number
              Value of this parameter sets cpuunits for CT0 (host system).

       LOGGING=yes|no
              Enables or disables logging. This parameter can be set to yes or
              no, default is yes.

       LOGFILE=file
              Set location of log file, default is /var/log/vzctl.log.

       LOG_LEVEL=number
              Set the logging level for the log file (does not affect  console
              output).   The  greater the number is, the more information will
              be logged to the LOGFILE. Default  is  0,  which  means  to  log
              normal  messages  and  errors. If set to -1, only errors will be
              logged.

       VERBOSE=number
              Set the logging level  for  console/terminal  output  (does  not
              affect  log  file).   Default  is  0,  which means to log normal
              messages and errors.  Increasing the number makes vzctl(8)  more
              verbose.

       MODULES_DISABLED=yes|no
              If the value of this parameter is set to yes, no attempt to load
              kernel modules is made by the vz initscript. This is helpful  on
              systems  which  have  OpenVZ-specific features compiled into the
              kernel (i. e. not as modules).

       IPTABLES_MODULES="module module ..."
              List of iptables kernel modules to be loaded  by  vz  initscript
              before loading OpenVZ modules (which is required for iptables to
              work inside containers). If not set, value of IPTABLES is used.

       VZFASTBOOT=yes|no
              If the value of this parameter is  set  to  yes,  vz  initscript
              called  with  start  argument  will  start  the  containers with
              uncleanly  shutdown  quota  state   without   performing   quota
              reinitialization  (which  is  usually a time-consuming process).
              After all  the  containers  are  started,  the  initscript  when
              restarts those containers with unclean quota in a normal way (to
              recalculate/fix quotas).

       TEMPLATE=directory
              Value of this parameter is a directory in  which  all  container
              template data are stored.

   Network interface parameters
       VE_ROUTE_SRC_DEV="device"
              This  parameter  specifies  the  network  device  name  which IP
              address will be used as the source IP. This is helpful  in  case
              more than one network interface is configured on HN and there is
              a need to specify the source IP address. Default  is  the  first
              device in the network device list.

       NEIGHBOUR_DEVS="detect"
              Controls  on  which  interfaces  to add/remove ARP records for a
              container IP, also which interfaces  to  use  to  query/announce
              ARP.  If this is set to detect, the right network interface (the
              one which is in the same subnet as  a  CT  IP)  will  be  chosen
              automatically.  Any other value restores old (as of vzctl 3.0.19
              or older) behavior, when all the possible interfaces were used.

       ERROR_ON_ARPFAIL=yes|no
              In case the value of this parameter is set to  yes,  vzctl  will
              fail to start a container if there is another host with the same
              IP in the subnet.  The value of no makes vzctl to only print the
              warning.

   Defaults for containers
       Below parameters are defaults for containers, and can be overwritten by
       parameters in ctid.conf(5) per-container configuration file.

       DISK_QUOTA=yes|no
              In case the value of this parameter is set to no, all disk quota
              operations are disabled.

       VE_ROOT=directory
              Value  of  this  parameter  is  the  directory  which  serves as
              container root mount point. Value must  contain  literal  string
              $VEID, which will be substituted with the actual numeric CT ID.

       VE_PRIVATE=directory
              Value  of this parameter is the directory in which all the files
              and directories specific to that  container  are  stored.  Value
              must  contain  literal  string  $VEID, which will be substituted
              with the actual numeric CT ID.

       CONFIGFILE=name
              Default configuration file for  create  action,  corresponds  to
              --config option.

       IPTABLES="module module ..."
              List   of   iptables  modules  to  be  enabled  for  containers,
              corresponds to --iptables option.

       Most of the other parameters that appear in per-container configuration
       files  ctid.conf(5)  can  be also set here. Still, it is recommended to
       keep TEMPLATE, VE_PRIVATE and VE_ROOT in this configuration  file,  and
       all   the   other   container   related   parameters  in  per-container
       configuration files.
