Bug Description

from a comment in bug 1669675.

The OpenStack detection fails on the 1st gen compute hosts (using Xen hypervisor) in the Open Telekom Cloud.

Handle 0x0100, DMI type 1, 27 bytes
System Information
 Manufacturer: Xen
 Product Name: HVM domU
 Version: 4.1.2_115-908.762.
 Serial Number: 3c569b61-463d-49e0-ad09-c5e2235ce658
 UUID: 3C569B61-463D-49E0-AD09-C5E2235CE658
 Wake-up Type: Power Switch
 SKU Number: Not Specified
 Family: Not Specified

Handle 0x0300, DMI type 3, 13 bytes
Chassis Information
 Manufacturer: Xen

 Lock: Not Present
 Version: Not Specified
 Serial Number: Not Specified
 Asset Tag: OpenTelekomCloud
 Boot-up State: Safe
 Power Supply State: Safe
 Thermal State: Safe
 Security Status: Unknown

Detection in ds-identify could look for Xen (HVM domU) and the Asset Tag.

... Alternatively, the UUID looks also suspiciously like OpenStack ...

Could you please run:
  cloud-init collect-logs
and attach the output here?

And also:
  $ sudo sh -c 'cd /sys/hypervisor && grep -r . *'
  $ sudo sh -c 'cd /sys/class/dmi/id && grep -r . *'

Thank you.

I assume you want me to collect logs from an unpatched VM?

Contents of /sys/hypervisor and /sys/class/dmi/id from VMs on 1st gen XEN hosts on OTC attached.
