Description of problem:
Defining which Provisioning template will be used for a hostgroup or host is not possible directly from the host/hostgroup part. This is also inconsistent with the other provisioning settings like OS and Partition table.
Currently the template association with hostgroup is only visible in the second tab of the provisioning templates menu. Also this association is has a redundant element because a hostgroup can have only 1 environment being set.
Proposal is to define the provisioning template in the host/hostgroup provisioning tab. With the default being populated after selecting the OS.
This makes it also consistent with selecting the provisioning template like it is on the OS configuration. Although that also does not seem to be working always.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
Provisioning template can be defined per host or hostgroup

This is an older bug which I do not envision being addressed in the near term. I am closing this out. If you believe doing so is an issue, please feel free to re-open and provide additional business information. Thank you.
I am re-opening this bug because the fact that Kickstart Templates are only tied at the Operating System level and can't be override at the Host Group Level forces the user to create advanced logical OR custom Operating System to be able to use different Kickstart Templates for different situation.
By Example they might have to create an Operating system for different kind of role:
Also, this leads into a situation where their provisioned hosts using these custom Operating System are no longer tied with the proper Operating System after the provisioning. So the user need to follow this KCS/BZ:

Thank you for your interest in Satellite 6. We have evaluated this request, and we do not expect this to be implemented in the product in the foreseeable future. We are therefore closing this out as WONTFIX. If you have any concerns about this, please feel free to contact Rich Jerrido or Bryan Kearney. Thank you.
