We have a server running Debian Etch and OpenVZ and managed to install and run True Image Server 9 for Linux succesfully on the host. The main consideration for deploying OpenVZ is security and as such we only run a bare minimum of highly neccessary services on the host itself. All other services and applications run in dedicated OpenVZ VPS's (Virtual Private Servers). True Image is one of the applications we want to run from within a VPS and although we got it to work without any problems on the host, we can not get it to run in a VPS. The reason appears to be the inability of the installer to (build and) install the snapapi26 module. When trying to build and install the module by hand as described in the HOWTO.INSTALL, we run into all kind of predictable problems due to the nature of OpenVZ. Building it from scratch should not be neccessary though, because we have a running True Image on the host and applications running in a VPS run as processes under the kernel of the host. The question now is: how do we transfer the working True Image setup from the host to the VPS? Is there a way to copy the snapapi26 module to the VPS and if yes, how do we do that?
