Hello, Pve-user.

I'm  not  user  of PVE, but using vzdump/vzrestore tool to move openvz
containers from one node to another. Yesterday I've found that vzdump,
doesn't  copy  extended ACLs . Some digging makes me think the problem
is  in  tar  utility  ,  not  the  vzdump  itself.  Looks like someone
described               similar              problem              here

So, as possible solution one can use bsdtar for this, which is in
debian packages already. For lenny there is old version which doesn't
support numeric uid/gid, but version in squeeze does. I've backported
squeeze's version to lenny, worked nice, just required some libs from
lenny-backports repo, but may be this is fixable.

The question is - what do you think about switching to bsdtar as
default or may be with special command-line flag ? Or may be there are
some other solution i'm missing?

Best regards,
