You can manage your OVA virtual servers at a raw configuration level by editing the configuration file available for each VS in your Control Panel. 

  • This functionality is available only for virtual servers created from the OVAs with the Network Appliance operating system.
  • You can only edit configuration file for OVA virtual servers that are built on CentOS 7 KVM compute resources.
