Cloudmin OpenVZ veth option is missing

I am not able to find an option to switch from venet to veth. Veth is needed if a user wants to run Samba in a container.



Unfortunately at the moment only venet is supported..

Does Samba really need a veth interface? From what I read, a veth interface is only needed to enable broadcasting ..

From the OpenVZ wiki:

Venet network device is explicitly NOARP ... so software like Samba server or DHCP server will not function (under a container with a venet network device).

I'd expect you can still connect to Samba if the hostname is given explicitly on the client though - it just wouldn't appear when browsing..

Regardless, veth support is something we should support eventually..

Ok, no problem. Just reporting what I noticed. Hope I haven't created too many tickets!
