Migration via SolusVM interface

Important notes

  • It is not possible to migrate OpenVZ container from SolusVM Master node using SolusVM interface. For such migration - proceed to Manual migration for OpenVZ containers.

  • Due to differences between OpenVZ 6 and OpenVZ 7 - it is not possible to migrate from OpenVZ 7 node to OpenVZ 6 node.

In order to migrate a VPS (does not matter what virtualization) from one SolusVM slave node to other:
