While I agree with your statement, I have to be perfectly frank - sometimes a gentle nudge in the right direction will help people find the track to their end goal. At the time I didn't realise exactly what it was I was asking for... but I knew what it was that I wanted to accomplish. I have since accomplished my goals and am a great deal more knowledgeable in the area, and also know the correct lingo to be using. Please, in future, offer useful answers, or help people along the way - don't prompt them to not climb the wall so-to-speak.

Trust me when I say I looked for this, yet couldn't find it... Hence why I am here. Google does not always have the answer because it depends on asking the right question... And you often have to have an inkling of what you are actually looking for in the first place to ask that question. It also doesn't hurt to ask people maybe in the know before trawling through endless documentation trying to find a needle in a haystack. Just saying ...

Thank you, this is all I was looking for... Somewhere to start. In fairness if I knew what I was looking for, or the right question to ask, then I probably wouldn't be at Server Fault asking the question in the first place. It's too easy to take the easy route and say the question is not valid instead of maybe poking at it trying to figure out what the reason is underneath. We all have to learn somewhere, it is far too easy to forget that, and a gentle nudge goes a long way.

Ok, disregard the fact there is Web Hosting involved. I actually want to know for myself - it is very much a valid question. I also configure hosting locally, and on my own web server... and am a Developer... So I need to know the answer.

comment Shadow copy issues within Virtuozzo container with Server 2003 and Server 2008
To add to the above, the only solution was to re-install the server. Basically since Parallels containers share the host resources, and are not separate entities, if the host server becomes corrupt so does yours. I'd like to add that this issue may not be apparent to some as it only affects some services, notably all WEB services and WPA. The fix, if it was possible to fix, I remember is actually very simple - a couple of commands and done. I was unable to get my hosting company to run the fix, they either wouldn't or couldn't. Parallels are great for Linux/Mac containers though.

I'm glad to confirm the issue. I would also like to mention that you will develop an issue on a Windows container where a component of NTFS, I can't remember exactly which, will fail and will not allow you to refresh it. This will cause many services to fail booting and there is nothing you can do about it. It is not a matter of if, but when, as the same happened to me on three separate Parallels containers, each at different companies. If, like on XEN - highly recommend by the way OR VMWare, the container was completely separate we could fix the issue ourselves, this I confirmed also.
