FATAL: kernel too old

If the openvz slave node uses old kernel. i.e., 2.6.18-238.5.1.el5 then you get an error like "FATAL: kernel too old" when you restart a vps container from node.

FIX: All we need to do is replace the kernel version at  /proc/sys/kernel/virt_osrelease at slave node.

cd /proc/sys/kernel/    

 cat virt_osrelease

 echo 2.6.32 > virt_osrelease

Thats it.
