  • Virtuozzo hypervisor 4.0 for Mac Bare Metal


Parallels Management Console (PMC) works incorrectly if two VMs on different Parallels Server Bare Metal (PSBM) installations have the same Universally Unique Identifier (UUID) and registered in the same PMC instance.


Incorrect work of PMC is caused by conflict of UUIDs. Such conflict can occur if VM is copied manually to another PSBM server, registered in PMC selecting  "Moved VM" option and as consequence UUID is not changed.
UUIDs of VMs across all PSBM servers in your environment have to be unique to aviod UUID conflicts.
Solution is to re-register the copied VM in PMC selecting "Copied VM" option. This approach will generate new UUID for the copied VM.
To aviod UUID conflicts in future choose "Copied VM" option in PMC during registration of copied VMs.
