Nice, thanks! Could you please give us info on how to test it in an actual virtualization / cloud scenario?

Also, please note that the AzureMetadataService uses an ovf-env.xml, so there might be some overlapping there:

Posted in the review instructions on how to test the service in a virtualization scenario.

Also replied there to the question about Azure service overlapping (with an Azure ovf-env.xml sample): Azure creates a file ovf-env.xml, but the data is inside an Azure namespace. So the file created by vSphere is not parseable with Azure service.

Perfect thanks, we'll try it out ASAP, looking forward to merge this.
