Dear everyone,

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.
