With OVA, it is possible to resize hard disk ? (and change other settings like vCPU or RAM ?)

Re: Installing Airwave 8.0.1 #JulyMHC

If you plan to resize any of the resources from the OVA, this step needs to be done prior to powering on the VM.  That way the VM detects the change.

 

If you've already run through the setup, you may have to power off and power on the VM to get it to detect the new resources, but I have had 50/50 luck with changing resources post install.

That OVA install is so nice.

 

ISO isnt difficult but the simplicity of OVA is excellent. Like mentioned, it is a template without the obvious knobs needed to adjust configuration.
