    OpenVZ+ additional Hard Drive

    Before Install OpenVZ I had only one Hard Drive in my master node. Now my space is not enough. Can I install a additional hard drive without loosing data ?

    Using OpenVZ and SolusVM

    Easiest way to do this is to copy all data from /vz to a new drive, then mount new drive under /vz. No configuration change is necessary.

    If you have containers running while you copy, make sure you do not copy /vz/root/*. Instead create similar folders on target drive (/vz/root/111, /vz/root/222 etc)

    Sure, for that you would have to manually change containers' configuration files in /etc/vz/conf to point to wherever you want the container files to be located.
