When restarting a VPS on your node, you will receive the error. The VPS won’t start from command prompt as well as GUI.

Error: required UB parameter swappages not set

This is because swappages are not set for that particular VPS. You will need to set it with command

vzctl set VEID –swappages=100:100 –save

Now, try starting the VPS, it should work.

Note: Replace VEID with your actual VPS ID.
