General Virtual Machine Management

The prlctl utility is used to perform management tasks on virtual machines. The utility supports a full range of tasks from creating and administering virtual machines to getting statistics and generating problem reports.

The general syntax is as follows:

prlctl command <vm_ID | vm_name> [options] [-v, --verbose number]

The parameters are:

  • command: one of the available commands.

  • vm_ID | vm_name: ID or name of the target virtual machine.

  • 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 prlctl commands grouped by functionality.
