Subject [jira] [Created] (CLOUDSTACK-8489) Provide smbios vendor information via KVM/Libvirt to Guest
Date Wed, 20 May 2015 10:10:00 GMT
Wido den Hollander created CLOUDSTACK-8489:

             Summary: Provide smbios vendor information via KVM/Libvirt to Guest
                 Key: CLOUDSTACK-8489
             Project: CloudStack
          Issue Type: New Feature
      Security Level: Public (Anyone can view this level - this is the default.)
          Components: KVM
         Environment: KVM with libvirt
            Reporter: Wido den Hollander
            Assignee: Wido den Hollander
             Fix For: Future

Libvirt provides a away to provide smbios information to the guest.

In RHEV this is done this way:

  <sysinfo type='smbios'>
      <entry name='manufacturer'>Red Hat</entry>
      <entry name='product'>RHEV Hypervisor</entry>
      <entry name='version'>6.5-20131115.0.3.2.el6_5</entry>
      <entry name='serial'>49434D53-0200-904B-2500-4B902500B081_00:25:90:4b:81:b0</entry>
      <entry name='uuid'>6c7ffac8-0c30-408f-8da7-e3f6d2f9ed50</entry>
    <type arch='x86_64' machine='rhel6.4.0'>hvm</type>
    <smbios mode='sysinfo'/>

We should provide this information to guest as well so guest can easily detect that they are
running inside CloudStack.
