As you probably know, the Log Insight virtual appliance relies on OVF properties to handle some amount of configuration. OVF properties are powerful in that they can be set at deploy time, changed at a later time, and can be used instead of relying on a CLI or needing to write a UI on top of a CLI. With that said, OVF properties have two significant limitations:

- They can go missing
The issue of missing OVF properties is what I would like to cover in this post. Read on to learn more!
