I guess if you want to migrate away from Linux-VServer, then
the OpenVZ forum/ML might be more appropriate.

All the Linux-VServer guest configuration is stored in the
/etc/vservers/<guest-name> directory hierarchy.

Changes in /etc/vservers/ only have effect if the guest
is restarted, if you want to change guest settings on the
