Proxmox Ubuntu 14.04 Container

Creating the Ubuntu Container
  1. Download the Ubuntu 14.04 template from OpenVZ
  2. Log into Proxmox and upload the template to the appropriate storage location
  3. Click Create CT
  4. Create the new container with your desired settings
  5. Choose the newly uploaded template to use for the container
  6. When Proxmox reports TASK OK, the container is finished
  7. Start the container
Using NFS within a Container
By default, containers cannot use NFS. To enable NFS for a container:
  1. log into host
  2. shutdown container: vzctl stop [container id]
  3. enable NFS for container: vzctl set [container id] --features "nfs:on" --save
  4. start container: vzctl start [container id]

Gaining Access to the Ubuntu Container with noVNC Console
  1. SSH into the Proxmox host as root
  2. Type vzctl enter [ID# of container]
  3. Edit /etc/init/tty1.conf such that it looks like this:
    # tty1 - getty
    #
    # This service maintains a getty on tty1 from the point the system is # started until it is shut down again.
    start on stopped rc RUNLEVEL=[2345]
    stop on runlevel [!2345]
    respawn exec /sbin/getty -8 38400 tty1
  4. Restart the container
  5. Use console to log into the container (nothing might show, but just enter root as the username and press enter)
