How could I enable this tag ?

Without it they retain the ability to restore super user status because otherwise they cannot
perform restricted operations (such as bind to a reserved port).

provide some further insight. When a reserved port is bound without libcap (which is normally
done in the traffic_manager process) it has to reset the euid to 0 and possibly that is failing
because of VZ.
