Install Parallels tools on Ubuntu server guest

These instructions should work with 16.04 and 14.04

Select the VM, goto Actions --> Install Parallels Tools..

If you would like to manually load the tools, the location for it is:
/Applications/Parallels Desktop/Contents/Resources/Tools/prl-tools-lin.iso.

Once the guest tools iso is selected simply run the following to install the guest tools:

$ sudo su
$ apt-get install gcc make
$ mkdir -p /media/cdrom
$ mount /dev/cdrom /media/cdrom
$ cd /media/cdrom
$ ./install

Follow prompts to install tools, reboot

Host shares should now be mounted in Ubuntu guest under /media/psf via the installed prltoolsd service, set to start on system boot-up.
