Outdated SMBIOS version

Reported by: 29erpete Owned by:
Priority: major Component: network
Version: VirtualBox 4.2.0 Keywords: SMBIOS, biosdevname
Cc: Guest type: other
Host type: other


Currently (Version 4.2.0), SMBIOS Version 2.5 is provided, the currently available specification (from 2011) is 2.7.1. Versions < 2.6 cause problems when used with the new consistent network interface naming of RHEL/CentOS 6/Fedora based on biosdevname since information about network devices is missing (types 9 and 41 of SMBIOS specification).
