According to NASA, via Twitter:
One solar array did not deploy properly once Soyuz reached orbit. Crew still headed to ISS. Docking set for tonight at 10:15 p.m. EDT.

Despite the stuck array, Soyuz TMA-14M arrived at the International Space Station to dock to the Poisk module at 9:11 p.m. CDT.

Shortly after the docking, the port-side solar array deployed on Soyuz TMA-14M.

Oh no, not again!

By the way, despite the new Italian cappuccino machine, no word as to whether a decent cup of tea can be had on the ISS.

That is quite a large parachute placed into a relatively small Soyuz spacecraft, does anyone know what the thickness of the parachute is?
