Hello Alex, or anyone else affected, Accepted landscape-client into xenial-proposed. The package will build now and be available at https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/landscape- client/16.03-0ubuntu2.16.04.4 in a few hours, and then in the -proposed repository.
Please help us by testing this new package. See https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Testing/EnableProposed for documentation on how to enable and use -proposed.Your feedback will aid us getting this update out to other Ubuntu users. If this package fixes the bug for you, please add a comment to this bug, mentioning the version of the package you tested and change the tag from verification-needed-xenial to verification-done-xenial. If it does not fix the bug for you, please add a comment stating that, and change the tag to verification-failed-xenial. In either case, without details of your testing we will not be able to proceed. Further information regarding the verification process can be found at https://wiki.ubuntu.com/QATeam/PerformingSRUVerification .

[Test Case] The issue can be reproduced on libvirt/kvm. uvt-kvm create vm virsh edit vm <os> ... <smbios mode='sysinfo'/> </os> <sysinfo type="smbios"> <system> <entry name='manufacturer'>Apache Software Foundation</entry> <entry name='product'>CloudStack KVM Hypervisor</entry> </system> </sysinfo> <cpu match='exact'> <!-- defaults to qemu, which would me detected correctly --> <model fallback='allow'>core2duo</model> <vendor>Intel</vendor> </cpu> virsh destroy vm && virsh start vm uvt-kvm ssh vm --insecure sudo landscape-config --log-level=debug -a devel --silent -t testclient # will fail registering, but that's not relevant to the vm-type detection grep vm-info /var/log/landscape/broker.log # expected output is "KVM", and will be empty because of this bug [Regression Potential] * Like the previous update, this change is local and only affects vm-type detection, which should be low-risk. * Since we extend the current detection to fields we were not previously looking at, one of the risks is to falsely detect clients as running on KVM. This is why we took care to verify opposite scenarios in addition to making sure the existing unit tests pass. Were such a regression to occur, it would have a low user impact, as being detected as VM you can use either physical or VM license, whereas the opposite (due to the bug fixed here) is not true. [Other Info] * AWS and DigitalOcean instances have been fixed slightly differently in the previous SRU, but we wanted to avoid repeating this for every other cloud, thus extending the DMI field lookup instead of adding yet another mapping value. [Original Description] Instances running on a Apache CloudStack that is using KVM as a hypervisor are not detected as virtual machines by the landscape- client. They are using a Full license to register instead of a Virtual one.
