Openvz "Container already locked" Error Message Solution/Fix

I didn't find any useful information that actually fixed this.  My VPS was in the "Running State" and I could not stop or restart it.  I kept getting "Container already locked" no matter what I did (I tried all the suggestions in the Google results for this error).

Most of the suggestions were for Windows but I only use Linux.  The other solutioins also said to restart the VZ service or even the entire hostnode and this was not acceptable to me so I wanted to find a "clean fix".

I tried to "vzctl restart VEID" and "vzctl start VEID --force" and "vzctl stop VEID --fast" with no luck.

Here is how I fixed it:

  1. Delete the /vz/lock/VEID.lck file (where VEID is the number of your VPS).
  2. vzctl chkpnt VEID --kill

That's all there is to it, your VEID can now be restarted successfully.
