Description Miroslav Suchý 2010-07-28 15:01:20 UTC
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #619098 +++

Description of problem:
KVM guests do not report as FLEX guest due to missing data in smbios.system.manufacturer

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
RHEL6 Snapshot8

Steps to Reproduce:
1. install rhel6 host
2. startup kvm guest with rhel6
3. rhn_register
Actual results:
in hardware info is empty smbios.system.manufacturer:
PYTHONPATH='/usr/share/rhn/' python -c 'from up2date_client import hardware; print hardware.get_smbios()'

Expected results:
smbios.system.manufacturer should get data from 
/dmidecode/SystemInfo/Manufacturer and not from /dmidecode/BaseBoardInfo/Manufacturer

QE ack.  This needs to be fixed . . . want to make sure we have RHEL6 "right" from the start.

Comment 3 Miroslav Suchý 2010-07-29 07:29:07 UTC
Change is in satellite.git in commit a9523f1bd6e78eeca157a26404c037b4e7ae4162

Comment 5 Garik Khachikyan 2010-08-13 12:32:56 UTC

verified against package rhn-client-tools-1.0.0-34.el6

The python call of: hardware.get_smbios();
{'smbios.system.serial': 'Not Specified', 'smbios.system.manufacturer': 'Red Hat', 'smbios.system.skunumber': 'Not Specified', 'smbios.system.product': 'KVM', 'smbios.system.version': 'RHEL 6.0.0 PC', 'smbios.system.uuid': '6ce57e4f-a133-c522-dca4-f142f427c6bb', 'smbios.system.family': 'Red Hat Enterprise Linux', 'smbios.bios.vendor': 'Seabios'}
So the smbios.system.manufacturer = 'Red Hat'
