[Bug 1578022] Re: dmidecode fails to output smibios 3.0 info


Hi Colin,

We ran into this at Cisco during 16.04 certification, Samantha asked me
to collect the data you requested to see if we can be of any help.

kernel versions:
Ubuntu 16.04: 4.4.0-21-generic
RHEL 7.2: 3.10.0-327.el7.x86_64

I've attached dmi_cisco.rar which will have a screenshot with dmidecode
output same as Samantha's above, along with the /sys/firmware
directories for Ubuntu 16.04 and a fresh install of RHEL 7.2. I executed
as root and was able to poke around the directories, but if any issues
with the data I can try to recollect.
