Hello,

sorry for posting even though dietmar said the solution is on this forum. But i could not find anything that worked for me.



Now it seems like the console is not working anymore on my new ovz ct machine. I get the console window and the message that i am connected to ct 101 and that i can press ESC and . if i wanted to detach. But no login. I tried also the tty.conf trick in /etc/init but with no success (my ct is centos6). The vzctl enter 101 works...
Could you please give me an advice how to make things work again?

thanks

Hello, i am running the latest PVE. Yes i have seen this post but nothing worked for me :(

But i must say that i changed the hostname before so maybe it could be something in relation.

when i restart the ct and leave the console open i get this message but still no login available even though i can write in to the console.

init: Re-executing init
init: Failed to re-execute init: No such file or directory
starting udev: [ ok ]

hello,

yes i followed the wiki exactly. i am using the centos 6 default template from proxmox web gui and also the default centos 6 x64 template from openvz homepage.
the only thing i know is that tty1 is not starting in none of the both openvz CTs - even though i follow exactly the wiki. If i start the tty1 manually i get my login..
but when i start tty1 manually the login dissappers after i type in my username.

thanks

another thing...
when i run "initctl start tty" inside the CT everything just works fine... but the tty never comes up alone so i could start the console just right after starting the CT.
