Fixed In Version: ovirt-engine-4.3.0_alpha
Doc Type: Bug Fix
Doc Text:
The previous release changed the system manufacturer of virtual machines from "Red Hat" to "oVirt". This was inconsistent with preceding versions. Some users depended on this field to determine the underlying hypervisor. The current release fixes this issue by setting the SMBIOS manufacturer according to the product being used, which is indicated by the 'OriginType' configuration value. As a result, the manufacturer is set to 'oVirt' when oVirt is being used, and 'Red Hat' when Red Hat Virtualization is being used.
