Virtual Appliance – Initial Setup

I’m creating a virtual appliance based on CentOS 6.3 that will be packaged as OVF. Is anyone aware of an existing solution for post-deployment configuration (hostname, network settings and root password as a minimum) other than editing config files by hand – I’d like the process to be more user friendly than that if possible. Ideally it should be hypervisor-independent. It seems that anaconda can only be used during initial setup.

Thanks, Deyan

  • Try sys-unconfig (I think it comes by default on the system). I never used it but might be what you’re looking for.

    man sys-unconfig
