Description of problem:
When provisioning new RHEL VM to RHEV Compute Resource the newly created instance has Operating System set to "Other OS". In Satellite the operating system is configured as:
Major version: 6
Minor version: 5
Description: RHEL 6.5
OS Family: Red Hat
I had to change parameters in RHEV which are available only for Linux (for example kernel/initrd) and it's not possible if the VM is listed as "Other OS".
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. In Satellite create Operating System part of Red Hat family.
2. Provision new VM with Operating System from step 1 in RHEV Compute Resource.
3. Login to RHEV-M and check the actual value of "Operating System" for that VM.
Operating System is set to "Other OS"
Operating System is set to "Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.x x64"
Since this issue was entered in Red Hat Bugzilla, the release flag has been
set to ? to ensure that it is properly evaluated for this release.

Upstream bug component is Compute Resources
The patches were merged upstream:
Since the change was not that trivial, I advice not getting it into 6.1+ as it might cause conflicts with other potential 6.1+ backports later and lead to some instabilities.
We will not be addressing this bug in the 6.1 code base. If you have concerns with this, please feel free to reach out to me with any concerns or issues you may have. Thank you.
