Product:           Parallels Server Bare Metal

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

1. What's Included in This Update

New packages for Parallels Server Bare Metal 5.0 provide user-level tool
fixes for managing virtual machines, Containers, and their backups.

2. Problem Description
The new packages introduce the following feature:

- Online conversion of VZFS4-based Containers to the Container-in-an-image-file
  (ploop) layout (#PSBM-18696). With the vzmigrate --convert-vzfs --online
  command, VZFS4-based Containers can now be converted to the
  Container-in-an-image-file (ploop) layout without restarting. Destination
  servers should be running Parallels Cloud Server 6.0 Update3 Hotfix 3 (See http://kb.sp.parallels.com/en/116428).

The new packages also contain fixes for the following issues: 
#PSBM-17506: A running Container may fail to migrate to another Hardware Node
#PSBM-16537: A virtual machine may freeze during backup
#PSBM-19462: A virtual machine may crash during backup
#PSBM-16850: You may fail to create a virtual machine in PACI (Parallels Automation for Cloud Infrastructure)
#PSBM-19196: Parallels Tools do not work in an OpenSUSE 12.2 virtual machine
#PSBM-19654: A MAC address generated for Container's network adapter (bridged networking) 
may be a duplicate of an already existing MAC address
#PSBM-18187: After restarting, a virtual machine with enabled offline management may lose network 
connectivity via additional IP address
#PSBM-20578: A number of Parallels Server service-related "zombie" processes may remain running on a 
Hardware Node; all Parallels Server Bare Metal users are advised to update their tools packages
