Quota exceeded on CentOS 5.2 when creating OpenVZ container

I've installed CentOS 5.2 on a VirtualBox x86_64 VM and applied the latest OpenVZ patch (028stab059.6). When I run the following command

vzctl create 201 --ostemplate centos-5-x86_64-minimal --config vps.basic

I get a series of disk quota and tar unpack errors starting with this:

tar: ./fastboot: Cannot open: Disk quota exceeded

I have confirmed that disk quotas on the CentOS VM system are turned off. There is plenty of available disk space in /vz, as well as /. I am able to untar the template into /vz/private without problem.

Any suggestions?

You have the wrong architecture of vzquota installed.

Assuming you have the yum repo enabled just run the following to get the correct version installed:

yum install vzctl.x86_64 vzquota.x86_64
I suppose it is still a bug that it doesn't give you a better error message.
