Parallels prevents /Users

Post by alexwasserman » Wed Nov 07, 2012 12:43 pm

Hi all,

Does anyone know why Parallels creates /Users/Shared/parallels/backups on boot? Or which process creates it?

I have a ZFS volumes for /Users. However, since installing Parallels 7 I've found that the ZFS volume can't mount because earlier in the boot process Parallels have already put an empty directory in /Users: Shared/Parallels/backups directory into /Users.

Any way to disable this, or delay it til after ZFS mounts would be great.

At the moment i have to log into a console, use a spare admin user to remove /Users, then zfs mount my /Users. All very irritating.

There are several system LaunchAgents for Parallels, but not very descriptive.

- OS: 10.8.2
- Parallels: updated Parallels 7.
- ZFS: ZFS Community Edition
