Description Dylan Gross 2015-11-05 14:47:35 EST
Description of problem:

   If the Capsule information has changed since a new foreman host was created, it will not get reflected in the host (unless the host is deleted/re-created, or the MAC address is modified).

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

   Observed on Satellite v6.1.2

How reproducible:   Always.

Steps to Reproduce:
1.  Incorrectly, leave the TFTP Capsule as "None" for the desired subnet
2.  Create a "New Host" under the "Hosts"... "All Hosts"
3.  Observe that /var/lib/tftpboot/pxelinux.cfg/01-<mac> is (correctly) not created

4.  Remedy the TFTP Capsule for the subnet by selecting the appropriate TFTP capsule.

5.  Edit the host under "Hosts"..."All Hosts" and then "Submit" again.  

6.  Observe that the /var/lib/tftpboot/pxelinux.cfg/01-<mac> is still not set, even though the TFTP capsule for the subnet is set properly.

Actual results:

   After correcting the TFTP Capsule for the subnet, editing and submitting the host did not create the TFTP entry for the host to be built.

Expected results:

   Editing and submitting the host again would recognize that the current capsule configuration for the subnet and appropriately create the TFTP entry.

Additional info:

   Note:  Easily worked around
    1.  Deleting and re-creating the "New Host" will correctly pull the TFTP capsule from the Subnet info.
    -- or --
    2.  Changing the "MAC Address" on the "Network" tab of the host when editing, before submitting, will also force it to recognize the change to the TFTP capsule for the subnet.   (Changing the IP Address does not appear to do so).

Per 6.3 planning, moving out non acked bugs to the backlog

Satellite wont update the host tftp entry unless its in build mode, please make sure its enabled.

another easier workaround is simply to click on rebuild - which will trigger validation (including tftp) to check the host is ready for provisioning.

I believe this is a user error - please reopen i miss understood.
