Creation of a cloud server from an image has been initiated via the Customer Control Panel. It is stuck in "Creation in Progress" status for a long time.

If the connection works, but the welcome message is not shown,
parallels-server process could be stuck. In that case try to restart it:
# service parallels-server restart
If the restart is stuck as well, then kill the correspondent process and start
# service parallels-server start
After that the creation of the server should fail, and the stuck server will disappear from CCP. Please start the creation again after the above-mentioned steps are performed.
Note: before killing the
parallels-server process, it could be useful to make a core dump of the process for further investigations using:
<process_id> with an actual process ID of the
parallels-server process. This dump can be provided to Odin technical support to investigate why the process was stuck.
