Thanks again. I downloaded the template files .tar.gz and placed them in
/var/lib/vz/template/cache/ but they don't show up under Create > Container.
However, they do show under Applicances Templates but with Description
"unknown".

I hope I don't have to restart because that would really be
an inconvenience and maybe impossible on production systems.

Regards
