For an audit for a certain Redmond based company our org would like to know if customers correctly report the os type that they are running in a VM. Obviously we are not going to let nmap loose on all our clients VMs. If a client used one of the images we uploaded, we know the OS, but for client created images does anyone have an idea? We are currently checking if the image name contains 'win' and we are looking if the named their volume something like '[A-Z]:', but that is not foolproof.

Is there any setting in OpenStack/KVM/QEMU that could give extra clues?
