The main thing to check is that there are no errors from yum during 
upgrade. This can happen in case you install custom packages (we 
shouldn't break there dependencies, but who knows - maybe some package 
has requirement on a package with "el7" in its suffix?) or if a 
divergence appears between CentOS and VzLinux (though normally this 
shouldn't happen).

After update you should see /etc/vzlinux-release file and all base 
packages should be replaced with the ones from VzLinux (this can be 
easily checked by distsuffix - VzLinux packages ends with "vl7").
