Cisco AnyConnect VPN on the Mac disconnects on Parallels Desktop startup

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

Symptoms

When I launch Parallels Desktop application, Cisco AnyConnect VPN on the Mac disconnects.

Cause

This is a default Cisco AnyConnect VPN behavior, it cannot be changed by any means from Parallels side, as Parallels Desktop creates new network interface on its startup that makes VPN to disconnect and then attempt to restore the connection.

Resolution

Please start one of your virtual machines and wait for the guest operating system to load, when guestOS finds network, VPN connection will reconnect automatically.
