Using vzmigrate utility

The following should be done to migrate OpenVZ 6 container between OpenVZ 6 nodes using vzmigrate:

1. InstallĀ openssh-clients package:

yum install -y openssh-clients

2. Download a script for installation of SSH keys:

chmod a+x

3. Install SSH keys on the target server:

./ destination_node_ip destination_node_sshport

4. Find VMID of the container for migration:

vzctl list

5. Migrate the container:

vzmigrate -v --ssh="-p destination_sshnode_port" destination_node_ip VMID

6. Update Master node database with the new location of VPS

/scripts/vm-migrate ID NEWNODEID

where ID - ID of the migrated VPS, can be seen in column ID in SolusVM > Virtual Servers; NEWNODEID - ID of the target node, can be seen in SolusVM > Nodes.
For example:

/scripts/vm-migrate 20 5
