Issue date: 2008-04-21
Product: Parallels Management Console 4.0
Keywords: compat Parallels Management Console migration backup restore

1. Topic:

Updated packages for Parallels Management Console 4.0 providing user-level tools fixes for the following functionality:

 - migrating Containers between Hardware Nodes;
 - managing Container backups;
 - viewing system and Virtuozzo logs;
 - logging in to Containers via Parallels Infrastructure Manager and Parallels Power Panels.

2. Problem description:

- It is impossible to clear the ‘Remove Container private area’ checkbox in Parallels Management Console when migrating Containers from Hardware Nodes running Virtuozzo 3.5.1 to Hardware Nodes having Virtuozzo Containers 4.0 installed.

- Parallels Management Console may crash when viewing the system and Virtuozzo logs collected on your Hardware Nodes.

 - It is impossible to use Parallels Management Console to log in to a Hardware Node or its Containers via Parallels Infrastructure Manager or Parallel Power Panel after installing update 400002 on this Node.

 - Virtuozzo Management Console does not show the VE status bar when it lists the Virtual Environments currently existing on the Hardware Node.

 - A message displayed when connecting to Hardware Nodes that were upgraded to Virtuozzo Containers 4.0 via Parallels Management Console should be improved.

 - It is impossible to edit the properties of those Virtual Environments that reside on Hardware Nodes running Virtuozzo Containers 4.0 and  registered in Parallels Management Console by using the Service VE IP address and the ‘vzagent0’ credentials.

 - The functionality of restoring the Service VE via Parallels Management Console should be dropped.

 - The ‘SWsoft’ inscription should be replaced with the ‘Parallels ‘ one in the ‘Report Problem’ window.

 - Removing an intermediate backup from an incremental backup chain in Parallels Management Console may result in breaking this backup chain.

3. Affected components:

- Parallels Management Console is a Virtuozzo Containers management and monitoring tool with graphical user interface. It is used to control individual Hardware Nodes and their Containers. Management Console is cross-platform and runs on both Microsoft Windows and Linux workstations.
