Where can I download OS and application templates for Parallels Cloud Server

  • Parallels Cloud Server


Parallels Cloud Server is standardized on general Linux components, and one of major advantages of this approach is the extremely easy templates installation.

As all other components of Parallels Cloud Server, OS templates as well as application templates can be installed through yum.

For older versions of Parallels Server Bare Metal and Parallels Virtuozzo Containers for Linux check this article:
1450 Where can I download PVC for Linux OS and application templates and how do I install them?

Typical templates operations by example

Example: Install Ubuntu 12.04 64-bit OS template
[root@pcs6 ~]# yum search ubuntu-12.04-x86_64-ez
Loaded plugins: fastestmirror
Repository cl-updates is listed more than once in the configuration
Loading mirror speeds from cached hostfile
 * cl-base:
=============================================================== N/S Matched: ubuntu-12.04-x86_64 ===============================================================

[root@pcs6 ~]# yum install ubuntu-12.04-x86_64-ez.noarch

Example: Find application templates for CentOS 6 64-bit
[root@pcs6 ~]# yum search centos-6-x86_64 | sort

Example: Update Parallels Plesk Panel 11 EZ template for CentOS 6 64-bit
[root@pcs6 ~]# yum update pp11-centos-6-x86_64-ez.noarch

NOTE: yum only manipulates EZ templates RPM packages, but it does not affect template caches.
After installing or updating the OS template it is necessary to update cache:

[root@pcs6 ~]# vzpkg update cache OSTEMPLATENAME


If there is any issue with templates manipulations go through basic troubleshooting steps:
1. Verify there are correct yum repositories for EZ templates present and enabled:
[root@pcs6 ~]# yum repolist
Loaded plugins: fastestmirror
Repository cl-updates is listed more than once in the configuration
Loading mirror speeds from cached hostfile

repo id                                  repo name                                               status
centos-vault-os                          CentOSVault OS for outdated CentOS 6.1 - x86_64         6187+1
centos-vault-updates                     CentOSVault Updates for outdated CentOS 6.1 - x86_64    1247+6
cl-base                                  CloudLinux Base                                           6474
ez-templates                             Parallels Cloud Server - EZ templates                     1058
ez-templates-32                          Parallels Cloud Server - EZ templates (32 bits)           1073
parallels-cloud-server                   Parallels Cloud Server Base                               2315
parallels-cloud-server-updates           Parallels Cloud Server Updates                              54
repolist: 18408
[root@pcs6 ~]# grep -E 'mirror|baseurl|enabled' /etc/yum.repos.d/ez-templates.repo

2. Clean and update yum metadata:
[root@pcs6 ~]# yum clean metadata && yum update metadata
