Are distribution upgrades in OVZ7 generally supported?


For anyone running Debian or Ubuntu in OpenVZ 7 containers, what has your experience been upgrading between OS versions, à la dist-upgrade/do-release-upgrade? Is it safe to assume it works these days, or would you rather reinstall a provided template?

@AnthonySmith At InceptionHosting in particular, is it safe to upgrade my servers without reinstalling?

    I can tell you that I have not had a single ticket about it since going fully VZ7, some legacy issues for those that migrated from VZ6 may be lurking.

    I would suggest though that you do not take the distro beyond the public repo versions, while I know that many will work fine from experience obviously you are getting in to the unsupported/tested realm at that stage:
