Description Stephen Benjamin 2016-03-08 16:46:35 UTC
Host facts get cleared, which breaks the `ip=` line in the kexec template:

  "kernel": "boot/CentOS-7.1-x86_64-vmlinuz",
  "initram": "boot/CentOS-7.1-x86_64-initrd.img",
  "append": "ks= inst.ks.sendmac ip=::::::none nameserver= ksdevice=bootif BOOTIF= "

We need to preserve the discovery_* facts, or better - preserve all of them, what if a discovery user wants to use custom discovery facts in a provision template?

Found this nasty bug during the PXEless demo today. Foreman now clears facts on build:

Comment 6 sthirugn@redhat.com 2016-03-24 17:43:16 UTC
Verified in Satellite-6.2-beta-Snap5.1

1. Provision a pxeless discovery host
2. In the discovery boot add some custom facts like the following:
 - discovery_fact1 = value1
 - discovery_fact2 = value2
 - fact3 = value3
 - fact4 = value4
3. Locate the discovered host in UI
4. Review to make sure all 4 facts from above show up in the discovered host.  Note that the last two facts will be under the Misc section.
5. Auto provision the discovered host with discovery rules based on facts above.
6. After provisioning, review the host.
 - First two facts still show up in the host
 - Last two facts are gone.
