Fixed In Version: ovirt-node-3.0.1-2.el6
Doc Type: Bug Fix
Doc Text:
A problem was caused by two different hypervisor images existing and using the same CPE information. This meant the CPE information could not be used to distinguish between the different hypervisor images To fix this, the CPE information of the base image was adjusted.This means the hypervisor base image can now be distinguished from other hypervisor images because it has its own CPE name.

Tested build on rhevh-6.5-20131024.1.0(ovirt-node-3.0.1-6.el6.noarch)
Verified test patch is added into this build.

until now, we are not sure the correct values of different cpe names to the different image types(rhevh for rhev, and rhevh base image, ...)

For rhevh 6.5 base image build, the output is here. 

# cat /etc/system-release-cpe 

We will verify this bug when the cpe name value is decided for different image types.
