Beginning with V2.2 (already available in pvetest repo) we implemented a new OpenVZ console.
If you start the console for an existing OpenVZ Debian container you cannot login by default
In order to enable login, just do the following:
Login via SSH on your Proxmox VE host and ‘enter’ the container, and add at the end of the file »’/etc/inittab »’
