When trying to migrate container to Parallels Server Bare Metal virtual machine Parallels Tools installation fails:
[root@ps5bm ~]# vzctl start 1000 
Container is already running 
[root@ps5bm ~]# pmigrate c 1000 v mimimi 
Connecting to local agent... 
Parallels Transporter Agent version 8 detected, trying again in compatibility mode... 
Connecting to local agent... 
Querying configuration... 
Operation progress 100 % 
Registering VM... 
Installing guest tools... 
Timeout of automatic installation guest tools, please start VM and install guest tools manually 
[root@ps5bm ~]# 


Most likely the issue is caused by the lack of memory inside the resulting virtual machine.
Increase memory limi for source container before c2v migration:
[root@ps5bm ~] vzctl set 1000 --physpages 262144:262144 --save 

Recommended limit is 1+ GB.
