prlctl commands to remote server get stuck, for example:
prlctl migrate ct101 10.0.0.10
Login failed: Connection to Parallels Service was lost. There may be connection problems or the server may be down. Contact your Parallels Server administrator for assistance.
prlctl backup ct101 -s 10.0.0.10
Login failed: PrlJob_Wait: Operation timeout. The operation could not be completed due to a timeout.
Both servers configured with MTU 9000

The neighbour switch is not capable of processing jumbo frames, which breaks proper network communication between the dispatchers
Resolve the issues with the network switch: make sure it supports jumbo frames and this functionality is enabled.
As a temporary workaround, MTU can be decreased to 1500.
# ip link set mtu 1500 dev eth0
