Donal, 
Great to know that you would be doing changes to systemvm template. 
I am curious to know how the host data will be passed to the systemvm's running in hyperv.
In my initial investigation I figured out with Integration Services installed in the Linux,
we can get the guest details like (version etc) using KVP component. 
I was not able to figure out how we can send the data/values from host to systemvm's. 
I had read for windows based guest vm's we can send data from host to guest and we can see
those in the guest registry. 
Once you figured out how to handle for linux please share it, it's very interesting to know.

Thanks
Rajesh Battala

Great!  I may need to update the template to allow it to accept host data from a Hyper-V 2012.
 

Unlike XenServer, a Hyper-V host passes data through a user mode daemon that write key/value
pairs to a file.  I need to investigate a bit further, but I believe that the daemon starts
and startup scripts need updating to deal with the key/value pair file format.
