Parallels Desktop

Get memory dump from VM


prlctl binary is in /usr/local/bin

  1. List any VMs
    prlctl list -a

1a. Start if needed

prlctl start {5121-a2134-adfsdf} <- whatever the UUID is of the one listed from the last command
  1. Run the dpgdump command (dumping memory.dmp to Desktop of current user)
    prlctl internal {5121-a2134-adfsdf} dbgdump --path ~/Desktop/

Once this is done, Volatility and Rekal work just fine against the dump.
