Linux Containers (LXC) the new OpenVZ

I recently switched 2/4 Proxmox nodes to the latest build (V4). On those OpenVZ has made place for LXC. The reason why, I am not sure ’bout. I believe it was something with kernel modules and licensing, anyway it changed. Also all the commands have changed, not really good for a efficiency, now we have both systems in place, it will take some time to swap. Anyways this definite helps :


 

add in ~/.bashrc

alias vzctl='echo "use lxc-ls, lxc-info -n ID"'
alias vzlist='lxc-ls;echo "use lxc-ls; lxc-info -n ID"'

try it out :

source ~/.bashrc
vzlist
vzctl start 123

Jeeej bash hacks ftw!
