    Hyper VM to VDS Manager Migration = Near Disaster...

    What a mess I got into earlier today...

    I was going to migrate away from HyperVM to VDS Manager and during the "migration" it all went south - nothing was there, no containers existed at all. Luckily, we were able to back out of the upgrade but unable to return back to HyperVM.

    That is fine with us - we are comfortable enough in a CLI world to still deliver effective, customer driven solutions. Whatever you read on the web regarding the "effortless" migration - I say, take it with a grain of salt.

    Now I am stuck looking for a solution that I can roll out on my OpenVZ server with active containers - we want to give our customers control over their VPS...

    Anything out there? Any suggestions?

    Much appreciated!

    VSControl is being ported to OpenVZ very soon, you might just want to wait until then.

    Hyper VM to VDS manager is extremely easy, Infact a company on here (not mentioning who) just paid us to move nearly 100VPS for them to VDS manager. Although VDS manager is very new and a bit limited in the features it has, its a very nice CP for VPS's/

    Just need to compress all the containers and recover them into VDS manager, apart from doing little other things.

    you have to edit the config files for some of the VPS in ISP Manager. When imported they dont always come across correctly.

    - ensure that the correct CPU, ram, disk , hostname(ie and not name) are all correct.

    I would try run the migration on a test host first.
    As most people have said the process is very easy.
