Hi Anton,

OpenVZ uses generic xml format. It is common for all libvirt drivers.

one difference is filesystem:
    <filesystem type="template">
                         <source name="<name of template>" />
                         <target dir="/"/>


<domain type='openvz'>
                 <filesystem type="template">
                         <source name="centos-4-i386-minimal" />
                         <target dir="/"/>
                         <quota type="size" max="10000"/>
                         <quota type="inodes" max="200000"/>
                 <interface type='bridge'>
                         <source bridge='eth10'/>
                 <interface type='ethernet'>
                          <mac address='00:16:3e:34:21:9e'/>
                          <ip address="" />
