Not a guru answer : the mount points doesn't appear in the host because they
are in a different namespace. Each vserver has its own namespace. Namespaces
are a linux VFS feature. A process being in one namespace doesn't have the
same view of the mounted filesystems as another process being in another
So if you want to see the mount points of a vserver from the host (be careful,
the paths don't take into account the chroot) :
vnamespace <vserver> cat /proc/mounts
When you "enter" a vserver, the new shell is in the same namespace as the
vserver, so you can also administer it.
