Description Daniel Riek 2009-04-13 23:25:44 EDT
Expand the parsing of dmi information to identify the virtualization host to support KVM.

See bug 495612 for the kvm side.

Daniel - Can you explain this further?  What doe you mean by identify the KVM Host?  Did you mean KVM "guest"?

Comment 11 Petr Sklenar 2009-06-29 08:00:24 EDT
my tests environment:

1. Serve, Domain-0
- rhn_register to rhn.webqa
- XEN hypervizor
- it's Domain-0

2. xen20.englab.brq.redhat.com, Domain-U
- xen20 is created on dhcp-lab-159.englab.brq.redhat.com
- rhn_register to rhn_webqa
- it's Domain-U

3. Details for dhcp-lab-159.englab.brq.redhat.com on rhn.webqa.r.c but there isn't info about its domain-1 xen20

should I use only KVM virtualization or XEN hypervizor?
Is rhn.webqa.r.c supported for it?
