RE: [Vserver] Application problem, signal to init failed?

It turns out that I did not have any definition file for init for this
vserver. Is that normal?
I made it plain init and this service ( watchdog which monitors and
restarts dead services ) in plesk worked fine.

But now when I reboot inside the guest, it just shuts it down and does
not restart it.

are you sure that your guest has an init running
and not such a fake-init blendthrough?

(check the init stlye, sysv means fake, plain means real)
