Great, i added:

1:2345:respawn:/sbin/getty 38400 tty1

to my inittab (debian) and it worked ... almost, when i connect the 
screen is blank and when i push enter it says "Password:" (se screenshot)

Any idea how to work-around this?

> It's a new issue related to vzctl console.  I suppose because it hasn't formerly been used, many OpenVZ CT templates don't run a getty process on /dev/console.  The upside of that change in PVE 2.2 is you now can see real console output from the CT, but if there's no getty process running, of course you can't log in.  I expect the OpenVZ folks may release updated templates.

In PVE 2.2, there isn't a choice I'm aware of, at least in the UI.  You can still get a shell on the node/host where the CT is running and use vzctl enter to access the CT.
