After successful online migration container stays in the invalid state on the source node:

[root@destination ~]# prlctl list 101
UUID                                    STATUS       IP_ADDR         T  NAME
{77745c85-c7f6-41f0-b9f2-9271461bb6fc}  running      CT  101

[root@source ~]# prlctl list 101
UUID                                    STATUS       IP_ADDR         T  NAME
{77745c85-c7f6-41f0-b9f2-9271461bb6fc}  invalid      CT  101

Container was migrated over a shared storage (e.g. Virtuozzo storage) using vzmigrate --online command or through Virtual Automation web-interface.


This issue was recognized as a product bug with internal ID #PSBM-32870.


The issue will be permanently fixed in one of the future updates.

To avoid leaving the containers in invalid state on the source node, prlctl migrate should be used instead of vzmigrate:

[root@source ~]# prlctl migrate 101

To get rid of invalid instance of migrated container on the source node, parallels-server service should be restarted:

[root@source ~]# service parallels-server restart

NOTE: parallels-server restart will cause all running virtual environments on the node to restart.
