When i create a VPS, i got error

[root@server70 ~]# vzctl create 102 --ostemplate ubuntu-14.04-x86_64
Creating image: /vz/private/102.tmp/root.hdd/root.hdd size=2306867K

Error in check_mount_restrictions (ploop.c:1536): The ploop image can not be used on ext3 or ext4 file system without extents

Destroying container private area: /vz/private/102

[root@server70 ~]#

This is because OpenVZ recently started using ploop image for OpenVZ virtual machines. To fix this, edit /etc/vz/vz.conf

vi /etc/vz/vz.conf

Find

#VE_LAYOUT=ploop

Replace With

VE_LAYOUT=simfs

Now you will be able to create VPS.

[root@server70 ~]# vzctl create 102 --ostemplate ubuntu-14.04-x86_64
