  1. For Applications and scripts, select the relevant scripts that can prepare your server for specific necessary operations: install packages, edit configuration files, etc. The scripts will automate necessary steps involved in setting up your server’s applications and environment. This means that after the OS installation, you don’t have to manually perform these tasks. You can create your own script in advance or use the default one from the VMmanager repository. If you don’t want to use any scripts, select the Without script option.

  2. Configure the new VM password: Save the suggested password or generate your own.

Please note: After the OS reinstallation, the old password will become invalid. If you want to keep your current password, enter it to the new password field.

  1. Click Reinstall.

Once the VM status changes back to Active, your machine will be ready to run again.
