discovred host

Description of problem:
I was trying pxe-less discovery of a host via external capsule and without dhcp feature. DHCP was not available on external capsule. 

Host was discovered successfully, please see the screenshot. However when I tried to provision that host, following error appeared in production.log

Upstream fix provided, workaround available (oneliner change). Hope to merge this today/tomorrow.
Comment 6 Sachin Ghai 2015-11-09 09:40:45 EST
Setting the blocker flag, since affected functionality is a release blocker.
Comment 7 Lukas Zapletal 2015-11-11 02:49:47 EST
Definitely a blocker, upstream fix TBM.
Comment 11 Sachin Ghai 2015-11-26 11:57:42 EST
Verified with Sat 6.1.5 compose2(Satellite-6.1.0-RHEL-7-20151125.0)
and using scratchbuild of discovery image from brew having version: foreman-discovery-image-3.0.5-2.iso

I can provision a pxe-less discovered host.
