OpenVZ/Virtuozzo Enable Fuse in Container

To enable Fuse to work inside a OpenVZ container it's very simple (although some people say it can't be done).

Remember that on your HN (HostNode) for OpenVZ, Fuse must be installed and the module must be loaded for this to work.  In addition remember that you need the Fuse package installed inside the container of course.

vzctl set 2000 --devices c:10:229:rw --save
vzctl exec 2000 mknod /dev/fuse c 10 229

The part that most people forget when trying to enable Fuse on OpenVZ is that the container must be restarted, otherwise you'll get this message:

fuse: mount failed: No such device

Simply restart the OpenVZ container and then things will work:

vzctl restart 2000 or you can just manually reboot from within the container.
