This issue is blocking UEFI testing on RHEL5.
Comment 2 Jeff Burke 2012-03-08 08:43:54 EST
 Can you have someone look into this issue. This is currently blocking us from adding new UEFI systems to Beaker.

I'm not able to fully test with an UEFI system, but the following patch does not generate a grub entry for a system if "Netboot Enabled" is set to false for that system.  From everything i can test without a UEFI system the above patch fixes the issue.  If it is possible to test this patch, it would be greatly appreciated.

1st patch actually only solved the issue for cobbler sync.  This new patch should now also remove the grub file for the post kickstart hook.

This package has changed ownership in the Fedora Package Database.  Reassigning to the new owner of this component.
Comment 8 James C. 2012-04-16 21:05:32 EDT
Has this issue been corrected as of the 2.2.x release? Also, is bug #696802 the same issue you're reporting above? It appears to be, so I may close this as a dupe to work it under a single bug id.
Comment 9 James C. 2012-06-06 10:03:27 EDT
Closing this bug, as there have been no updates in a while and the issue may be corrected in the current version. If not and the issue resurfaces, please submit the patches via github and I'll get them merged in.
