Make sure that when in your vserver, that you disable the network service,
While in vserver...
chkconfig --del network
If this service is configured, it will try to stop the eth0 device, which
obviously can't be done from within a vserver.

Subject: [vserver] vserver xxx stop hanging
Here I am again. Different system and I've actually tried several
different things to determine and correct the problem.
RHL 8.0 system, 2.4.20ctx-17, reference vserver based on the main server and
cleaned up. Issue is when stopping a vserver it always hangs when shutting
down eth0 - forever. Checking with vtop I see 95%+ cpu usage by ip.
Hopefully I didn't remove something important when I was cleaning out the
reference vserver and I'm not quite sure when it started happening.
This system is a "work when I get a few minutes thing" so it is pretty hit
and miss and I've been really stupid about not documenting the changes I've
I did note the RPM (iproute) that ip is a part of talks about the 2.2.x
kernels not the 2.4.x's. Could this be an issue? I'll create a new
reference vserver this evening - trying again from a RHL 8.0 CD and that
failing from the main server to see if my cleaning caused the problem.
Btw, has anyone got the build (newvserver) from a CD to work? It used to
- ctx-13/15, vserver 0.21 - if memory serves me correct but I've played hell
trying it to work with the later ctx kernels and vserver 0.22. When
I try again tonight I'll note the errors I'm getting. Heck the kernel
isn't an even numbered release but the package is. :-)
