Any operation on a VE gives me "Cannot lock VE" error. How do I solve this?

APPLIES TO:
  • Parallels Cloud Server
  • Parallels Virtuozzo Containers for Linux
  • Parallels Server

Resolution

A container is locked when some operation (backup, migration, start/stop, etc) with this VE is in progress. You can determine which process is holding the VE, using the following command on the Hardware Node:

# cat /vz/lock/<CTID>.lck

You can kill that process if you are completely sure it will not cause any harm. If there is no process with the obtained PID, simply remove the lock file.

Real life example:

[root@vz ~]# cat /vz/lock/821.lck
5196
backing-up

[root@vz ~]# ps -p 5196 fwww
    PID TTY      STAT   TIME COMMAND
   5196 ?        Dl     0:05 /opt/pva/agent/bin/vzlpl /var/opt/pva/agent/tmp.RbCurO
