    Hi, is there a way to add manual created virtual machines (openVZ)?
    I have several VMs i want to import into ISPConfig to manage them (adding new websites, databases, ...).
    How can i add them without creating new ones?

    There is no easy way to add an existing vm into ispconfig. The best option might be to recreate the vm in ispconfig and then move over the content of the existing vm (move the whole vm files / directories on the host server).

    I`m not sure if would like to manage the VMs (ie. set the diskspace or memory-limits with ispconfig) or if you want to run different services in each VM. In the 2nd case create a multi-server setup and let the installation inside each VM join your exitsing setup.

    Hi florian, yes i've tried that yesterday and it looks good. I've manually create a vm (i have nice command line tools for that, thats why i want to manage them outside of ispconfig) and installed ISPConfig incl. joining the main installation. This works great, i can create websites/databases on the VM but have mail/ftp running on the host.

    thanks guys
