Create template option in the SolusVM admin VPS manage page is for the SIMFS file-system based OpenVZ VPS on the server.  

To create the custom template from the PLOOP based file system refer to the below steps.
===
  1. Connect via SSH to the OpenVZ server where the source template container is running
  2. Stop the source template container via SolusVM
  3. Create a directory for mountpoint, e.g.:

    # mkdir /templatemnt

  4. Mount the image of the source container CTID:

    # mount -t ploop /vz/private/CTID/root.hdd/DiskDescriptor.xml /templatemnt

    Note: CTID should be replaced with the actual ID of the source container

  5. Change directory location and create a template as per command below, e.g. for CentOS 7:

    # cd /templatemnt
    # tar --numeric-owner --ignore-failed-read -czpf /vz/template/cache/centos-7-custom.tar.gz ./*

    The temaplate file name should be as per the following syntax: distributive-version-arch-specs.tar.gz

  6. Unmount the ploop device:

    # cd ~
    # umount /templatemnt

  7. Upload the template file on the Master server and configure the template
