Guest Operating System Information

Guest operating system identity for the VirtualMachineInstance will be provided by the label kubevirt.io/os :

metadata:
  name: myvmi
  labels:
    kubevirt.io/os: win2k12r2

The kubevirt.io/os label is based on the short OS identifier from libosinfo database. The following Short IDs are currently supported:

Short ID Name Version Family ID
win2k12r2 Microsoft Windows Server 2012 R2 6.3 winnt https://www.microsoft.com/es-es/evalcenter/evaluate-windows-server-2012-r2

Use with presets

A VirtualMachineInstancePreset representing an operating system with a kubevirt.io/os label could be applied on any given VirtualMachineInstance that have and match thekubevirt.io/os label.

Default presets for the OS identifiers above are included in the current release.

Once the VirtualMachineInstancePreset is applied to the VirtualMachineInstance, the resulting resource would look like this:
