The Virtual Machine hangs. How can I stop it?


  1. Use "prlctl stop VM_NAME --kill" command.
  2. VM can be stopped by killing it's process:

    • Check the UUID of the VM:

      # prlctl list MyVM
      UUID                                    STATUS       IP_ADDR         T  NAME
      {78d11ba8-cac7-4e2e-8f7b-3cc52836bf23}  running     VM MyVM
    • Find out the PID of the VM process:

      # ps ax | grep 78d11ba8-cac7-4e2e-8f7b-3cc52836bf23
       548474 ?        Sl   131:48 /usr/lib64/parallels-server/prl_vm_app --uuid {78d11ba8-cac7-4e2e-8f7b-3cc52836bf23} --dir-uuid {3e9b9b89-f7af-42f9-b363-ecf1bdd307fd} --mode ps
    • Kill the process:

      # kill -9 548474
