this is on a gentoo system.

i am trying to create a guest called support. i created the mount point
in /vservers, it is mounted and a clear, empty volume. i run this command and
get this result:

phoenix vservers # vserver-new support --hostname support --context 3920
--interface eth3: template /work/guest-stuff/template.tar.bz2
 * Existing vserver installation found. Try --destroy

support does not exist in /etc/vservers or in /vservers as a configured guest,
the context 3920 does not exist either and the ip address is not in use.

i have tried changing the name of the guest, the context number, even the
ethernet device still the same... its almost behaving like it has run out of
resources or something but there are only 8 guests in operation.. this would
be the 9th.

what could be happening?

and of course this happens when the boss wants this done in the next few

and asked 'Why do you not get the viruses or the BlueScreensOfDeath
or insecure system troubles and slowness or pay through the nose 
for an OS as *we* do?!!', and I answered...'I use Linux'. "
