"There was a problem connecting to the server" error appears when I am working with my virtual machine:
Aliases for wrong network locations.
An alias in Mac OS X is a tiny file that automatically opens the file, folder, disk, or network volume that it represents. Although an alias in Mac OS X Lion is technically an icon, it’s different from other icons; it actually does nothing but opens another icon automatically when you double-click it.
When you create an alias, its icon looks the same as the icon that it represents, but the suffix alias is tacked onto its name, and a tiny arrow called a badge (as shown in the margin) appears in the bottom-left corner of its icon.
Update Parallels Desktop 10 to the build 10.2.0 (28956):
- Go to the Parallels Desktop menu and click on "Check for Updates..."
- The latest updates are also available for manual download. Use this option if you are unable to check for updates from within the product.
Open virtual machine configuration > Options > Sharing and disable Shared Profile.
Quit Parallels Desktop.
On the Mac side search for aliases created for network locations in the following directions:
~/Desktop ~/Documents ~/Pictures ~/Music ~/Movies ~/Downloads
Once you find them, try to open them. If you get the same error, then remove it, because the alias is linked to no longer available network location.
- Empty the Trash.
If nothing is found it, probably, is already in the Trash. In that case just empty the Trash.
