Parallels Virtual Automation troubleshooting

Article ID: 6981, created on Dec 8, 2009, last review on Jun 7, 2014

APPLIES TO:
  • Operations Automation 5.5
  • Operations Automation 5.4
  • Server Virtualization

Resolution

Linux/Unix, Management Node:

Parallels Virtual Automation (PVA) status: pvamn status

PVA restart: pvamn restart

PVA (Control Center) status: pvacc status

PVA (Control Center) restart: pvacc restart

Special config file: /opt/pva/mn/bin/pva.conf

[log_folder] - Location of log files, default: /var/log/pva

[etc_folder] - Location of config files, default: /var/opt/pva/mn/etc

To change the log level, find the vzagent.conf location in pva.conf, and change it to <log_level>. Once the log level is changed, restart pvamn

3 – INFO level

4 – DEBUG level

6 – DEBUG level with XML messages

NOTE: Do not forget to decrease the log level back to the original value once you have finished troubleshooting. Having a log level higher than 2 may cause rapid growth of log files, possibly filling up all free space on the disk and leading to data corruption and downtime

Installation logs: /var/log/pva/setup/

To collect the PVA Report, run: /opt/pva/mn/bin/pvareport.sh <report_folder>

Again, do not forget to decrease the log level after collecting the report.

Linux/Unix, Slave node:

PVA status: pvaagent status

PVA restart: pvaagent restart

PVA (Power Panel) status: pvapp status

PVA (Power Panel) restart: pvapp restart

Special config file: /opt/pva/agent/bin/pva.conf

[log_folder] - Location of log files, default: /var/log/pva

[etc_folder] - Location of config files, default: /var/opt/pva/agent/etc or /vz/pva/agent/etc

To change the log level, find the vzagent.conf location in pva.conf (by default it is /var/opt/pva/agent/etc/vzagent.conf or /vz/pva/agent/etc/vzagent.conf),and change it to <log_level>. Once the log level is changed, restart the pvaagent service.

3 – INFO level

4 – DEBUG level

6 – DEBUG level with XML messages

NOTE: Do not forget to decrease the log level back to the original value once you have finished troubleshooting. Having a log level higher than 2 may cause rapid growth of log files, possibly filling up all free space on the disk and leading to data corruption and downtime.

Installation logs: /var/log/pva/setup/

To collect PVA Report, run: /opt/pva/agent/bin/pvareport.sh <report_folder>

Again, do not forget to decrease the log level after collecting the report.

Windows, Management Node:

PVA status: sc query pvamn

PVA restart: sc stop pvamn &sc start pvamn

PVA (Control Center) status: sc query pvacc

[etc_folder] - Location of config files, default value:

x64 server - C:\Program Files (x86)\Parallels\Parallels Virtual Automation\Management Server\Data\etc

x86 server - C:\Program Files\Parallels\Parallels Virtual Automation\Management Server\Data\etc

To change the log level, find the vzagent.conf location in pva.conf and change it to <log_level>. Once the log level is changed, restart pvamn:
