This should be fixed in upstream now, moving to POST

Comment 4 Roman Plevka 2018-02-16 14:26:20 UTC
this bug prevents provisioning of hosts if the HG doesn't have the pxe loader set.
The NULL value causes the grub configs are not being placed anywhere on TFTP (not even pxelinux.cfg).

Comment 5 Lukas Zapletal 2018-02-16 14:46:29 UTC
Sure, this is not a blocker but important bug that must be in z-stream pretty soon.

WORKAROUND: Set PXE loader for host instead of hostgroup.

Version tested:
Satellite 6.4 snap 8

Nesting hostgroup successfully inherit pxeloader value.(see attachment)
