It is possible to reinstall a newly created VPS using the Client area:
Bug #SVM-1831 that is planned to be fixed in future SolusVM versions.
Until the fix becomes available use the reinstall feature from the client area:
Log in SolusVM administrator web interface.
Log in as a client in Virtual Servers > VPS > login as client.
Reinstall the container in Affected VPA > Manage > Reinstall.
Warning: it it essential to completely re-create all VPS that has been already reinstalled using admin area as after that even client area reinstall feature will not be working.
Additionally, container can be re-installed from command line console using OpenVZ native utilities:
- Connect to the SolusVM Master via SSH
- Stop the container
# vzctl stop CTID
- Re-install OS
# vzctl reinstall <CTID> --ostemplate <template_name>
where <CTID> should be replaced with actual VPS CT ID and <template_name> should be replaced with the template name without ".tar.gz" part.
CTID - 101
template_name - centos-7-x86_64-minimal
# vzctl stop 101
# vzctl reinstall 101 --ostemplate centos-7-x86_64-minimal
