Parallels Virtual Automation (PVA)  shows "HTTP Error 404.15 Not Found" error during an attempt to create container.

Container is not created in the following conditions:
   - PVA management server is installed inside Windows 2008.


IIS by default is configured to reject querystrings longer than 2048 bytes.


To workaround this issue it is necessary to change IIS config: C:\Windows\System32\inetsrv\config\applicationHost.config, add three records marked by plus character as follows:

        <location path="PVA Control Center Web Site/vz/cp">
+                <requestFiltering>
+                    <requestLimits maxQueryString="8192" />
+                </requestFiltering>

It is recommended to backup applicationHost.config file before applying the changes.
