Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1303145
Need to collect host system-id for ppc64 LPAR guests
Last modified: 2017-12-06 06:31:35 EST
Description of problem:
On ppc64 systems running as LPAR guests under PowerVM, the identifier
for the host system is available in /proc/device-tree/system-id.
The format is a text file, one line, with the IBM system id for the host
as the content.
A made up example:
Subscription-manager should collect that fact. Fact name/namespace to
be determined, but something like 'virt.host_system_id'
This could potentially be used in lieu of requiring virt-who to
run against IBM lpar/virt management tools.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. log into ppc64 lpar
2. subscription-manager facts --list | grep system_id
