Problem Statement

A provider installed the new Parallels Virtuozzo Containers (PVC) for Linux servers, and they want to register it in POA.

Resolution

Follow the procedure below to register the new PVC for Linux servers in POA.

Make sure the following prerequisites are satisfied:
  • The PVC server has a backnet and frontnet IP addresses.
  • The PVC server is accessible from POA Management node.
  • The Hostname of the PVC server is resolved to a backnet IP address.
  • A valid license is installed on the PVC server.
  • The PVC server is not registered in PVA (Parallels Virtual Automation).
  • All resource types based on the following resource classes are created in POA:
    • Traffic
    • VPS Hardware Nodes
  • The shared VPS backnet IP Pool has been created. (This will be used to automatically assign a backnet IP address to the shared VPS during its provisioning.)

Perform the steps below to register the PVC for Linux servers in POA:
  • Log into the POA Provider Control Panel.
  • Go to Top > Service Director Virtuozzo Manager > VPS Hardware Nodes.
  • Click the Register New VPS Hardware Node button.
  • Select the VPS Hardware Node resource type and click Next. (If you have only one resource type based on resource class VPS Hardware Node, then it will be chosen automatically and this step will be omitted.)
  • On the next screen, fill in parameters depending on your version of PVC for Linux:
    • PVC for Linux 3.x:
      • Address - backnet IP address of the Service Container
      • Username - vzagent0
      • Password - password of the vzagent0 user
      • Backnet IP Pool - select proper IP pool from drop-down list
    • PVC for Linux 4.x:
      • Address - backnet IP address of the PVC server
      • Username - root
      • Password - password of the root user
      • Backnet IP Pool - select proper IP pool from drop-down list
  • Click the Next button.
  • On the next screen, verify all entered parameters and click the Finish button.

POA will create a task with the name register HW Node with Agent IP IP_ADDRESS, (where IP_ADDRESS is IP address you entered in PVC server registration wizard) and will process the task in background.

If the status of the PVC server is Registration failed, you need to check task log and fix the found problem. After that, try to re-execute the task once again in the POA Task Manager.
