Manage Parallels Desktop from CLI

The prlsrvctl command-line utility is used to perform management tasks on Parallels Desktop. The tasks include getting the Parallels Desktop information, modifying Parallels Desktop preferences, installing a license, obtaining statistics and problem reports, and others.

The general syntax is as follows:

prlsrvctl command [options] [-v, --verbose number]

The parameters are:

  • command: one of the available commands.

  • options: command options.

  • -v, --verbose number: Show verbose output. The greater the number, the more verbose output will be produced.

The subsequent sections describe the available prlsrvctl commands grouped by functionality.
