Vendor X wants you to run their VNF (Router, Firewall or Whatever) and they
refuse to give you root access, or any means necessary to do 'maintenance'
kind of work, whether its applying security updates, or any other similar
type of task that is needed for you to integrate the Linux VM into your IT

Would this be an acceptable offering in today's IT from different type of
Enterprises (Minux the Googles, Facebooks...etc) ?
