7.2. Upgrading from OpenVZ Based on Kernel 3.10 to Virtuozzo 7

Warning

This procedure cannot be reverted.

Note

Upgrading requires an Internet connection to download Virtuozzo 7 packages.

To upgrade a server from OpenVZ based on kernel 3.10 to Virtuozzo 7:

  1. Run the upgrade script:

    # do-upgrade-vz7 --key <VZ7_product_key>
    

    In the process, the commercial Virtuozzo 7 packages will be downloaded and installed on your server.

    Note

    To skip license installation, use --skip-license instead of --key <VZ7_product_key>. In this case, you will need to install a license later with the vzlicload tool.

  2. Reboot the server.
