All work with media such as templates for creating the virtual servers should be performed on the master server.

At first, upload the templates to the master node at:

  • KVM: /home/solusvm/kvm/template/

    # ls -lahd /home/solusvm/kvm/template/
    drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 4.0K Jun 3 11:25 /home/solusvm/kvm/template/


  • Xen: /home/solusvm/xen/template/


    # ls -lahd /home/solusvm/xen/template/
    drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 4.0K May 26 09:53 /home/solusvm/xen/template/


  • OpenVZ: /vz/template/cache/


    # ls -lahd /vz/template/cache/
    drwxr-xr-x 2 solusvm solusvm 4.0K May 31 07:57 /vz/template/cache/


For OpenVZ 7 node, directory /vz/template/cache should be created and owned by solusvm:solusvm

mkdir -p /vz/template/cache

chown solusvm.solusvm /vz/template/cache/

You can upload the template using any tool you are comfortable with ( eg. FTP) or via SSH, for example:

# wget http://templates.solusvm.com/kvm/linux-debian-9-x86_64-minimal-latest-v2.gz -O /home/solusvm/kvm/template/linux-debian-9-x86_64-minimal-latest.gz
