Solusvm to Proxmox 2.0

I do not know solus vm in detail but as far as I know you talk about OpenVZ containers?

e.g. with backup/restore, using vzdump.
Run on the SolusVM host:

vzmigrate -v --ssh="-p 22" IP.of.your.Proxmox 101

That worked Very well.

I would however strongly suggest adding --remove-area no" to that command when running.
In short - this is important because IF THE NEW NODE DOES NOT HAVE A PROPER TEMPLATE - than it fails and you can be in all kinds of trouble.

The good news also is - you can still keep the old server running just by renaming the conf files and the /vz/private/id.migrated back to the numbers / filenames they used

Anyhow - I have been migrating roughly 300 containers out of Solus Tonight into ProxMox without difficulty.
Best Part - Once I turn all these other solus clusters down - I can use what I was spending as a donation to the folks who are making ProxMox possible.
