vzctl convert

Command to convert Containers based on VZFS, the layout used in earlier versions of Parallels Server Bare Metal, to the Container-in-an-image-file layout used in Parallels Cloud Server 6.0. The new layout has been redesigned to store all files of a Container in a single image, similar to a virtual machine's hard disk.


vzctl convert <CT_ID> [--velayout <layout_ID>]





ID of the Container to convert.

--velayout <layout_ID>

ID associated with the Container layout. To convert a Container to the Container-in-an-image-file layout, specify 5 after the option.

If this option is omitted, the command converts a Container to the layout defined by the VEFSTYPE parameter in the global configuration file /etc/vz/vz.conf. For the Container-in-an-image layout, this parameter should be set to ext4.
