PRL_ERR_VM_EXEC_GUEST_TOOL_NOT_AVAILABLE error means that Guest Tools are not working inside the newly created Virtual Environment.

The most common reason is the broken state of Guest Tools inside the original VM template.

If the Guest Tools are healthy, another possible reason is too low limits applied on the created VM that do not allow it to boot successfully.


Fix the Guest Tools state inside the VM template ('vm-template' is taken as an example of OS template name):

  1. Convert the template to VM:

    # prlctl set vm-template --template no
  2. Start the VM:

    # prlctl start vm-template
  3. Follow the Guest Tools installation steps. If the tools were already installed, reinstall them.

  4. Check the Tools state, it should be possible to enter the VM from the hardware node:

    # prlctl enter vm-template

    In case of any errors faced after Guest Tools reinstallation, use the available troubleshooting guide to resolve the issues or contact Virtuozzo Technical Support.

  5. Convert the VM back to template:

    # prlctl set vm-template --template yes
  6. Carefully review the VM limits applied from subscription resources and make sure there are no unexpected values (e.g. too low RAM limit).

  7. Re-run the failed task.
