There is a documentation on the cPanel portal that describes the necessary steps https://documentation.cpanel.net/display/CKB/How+to+Disable+Network+Manager
In short, the steps are below:

- network settings inside of the VPS if Configure Networking is enabled and SolusVM updates the network configuration file
Both scenarios has been checked on the test environment.
