How to Bind Mounts to a Container

Bind mounts can be used to make directories on the hardware node visible to the container.

This is how you can make host system’s /mnt/disk directory available to a container 777:

CTID=777  
cat << EOF > /etc/vz/conf/${CTID}.mount
#!/bin/bash
. /etc/vz/vz.conf
. ${VE_CONFFILE}
SRC=/mnt/disk
DST=/mnt/disk
if [ ! -e ${VE_ROOT}${DST} ]; then mkdir -p ${VE_ROOT}${DST}; fi
mount -n -t simfs ${SRC} ${VE_ROOT}${DST} -o ${SRC}
EOF  
chmod +x /etc/vz/conf/${CTID}.mount

If you want read-only mount, add -r option to mount command.
