Error while creating a Docker virtual machine: can't find service RpcServerDriver.GetVersion

APPLIES TO:
  • Parallels Desktop for Mac Business Edition
  • Parallels Desktop for Mac Pro Edition

Symptoms

I get one of the following error messages while creating a Docker virtual machine:

  1. WARNING >>> Error attempting heartbeat call to plugin server: rpc: can't find service RPCServerDriver.Heartbeat Error attempting to invoke binary for plugin 'parallels': rpc: can't find service RPCServerDriver.GetVersion

  2. WARNING >>> Error attempting heartbeat call to plugin server: rpc: can't find service RpcServerDriver.Heartbeat Error attempting to invoke binary for plugin 'parallels': rpc: can't find service RpcServerDriver.GetVersion

Cause

  1. You use new Docker Machine (v0.5.1 or later), but have the old Parallels plugin.

  2. You installed the new Parallels plugin (v1.1.0 or later), but use Docker Machine v0.5.0.

Resolution

  1. Update the plugin to the latest version according to the instructions here.

  2. Update Docker Machine to v0.5.1 or later. It is recommended to use the latest Docker Toolbox package:

    You can download the previous version of Parallels plugin (v1.0.2) compatible with Docker Machine v0.5.0 here as an alternative solution, however, we strongly recommend you to update Docker Machine.
