[PVE-User] Is it safe to upgrade from Proxmox-ve-2.6.18 to Proxmox-ve-2.6.35 at one shot?

There will be no new OpenVZ kernel for the next Debian release (Wheezy), also the current Debian Squeeze kernel for OpenVZ is not stable. That's why we move to the Redhat kernel source for Proxmox VE.
So with Proxmox VE you get the best enterprise kernel (rhel) together with the best and biggest distro - Debian.

For me this is a real winning setup for a stable Proxmox VE.

So, I tried 2.6.35 and it wouldn't install Windows 2008 Server out of the box. Maybe Alain has a fix to it....
I also wouldn't want to go close to 2.6.35 if I can't do OpenVZ. There is no way I will migrate to that version. Also, 2.6.18 can't install Windows 2008 Server.

So, the version that works as mentioned in this thread is 2.6.32.

So, if OpenVZ is maintained for RedHat systems wouldn't that mean that probably Proxmox team would have to pick up on OpenVZ to keep it supported in the Debian going forward if there are any new releases?

Test packages are always in pvetest. Pls wait till we announce the new kernel next week when we finished internal tests,
