Description Joniel Pasqualetto 2019-11-26 15:22:54 UTC
Description of problem:

When host to be provisioned has multiple nics and provision interface is not the primary interface, kernel line generated  for iPXE contains the wrong ksdevice.

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

How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create a host with 2 nics
2. Define one of the nics as primary and the other nic as provisioning
3. Render the iPXE template

Actual results:
mac address of the "ksdevice' parameter is the mac address of the primary  interface.

Expected results:
mac address of the 'ksdevice' parameter should be the mac address of the provision interface.

Additional info:

It's easy to fix, just use the variable @host.provision_interface.mac instead of @host.mac

Comment 3 Ondřej Pražák 2020-02-25 11:08:12 UTC
The change in the iPXE template has made it into 6.7 snaps already. Could QE verify this is fixed?

Comment 4 Roman Plevka 2020-03-05 09:07:42 UTC
on sat6.7.0-14

The template is updated and correctly set the ksdevice to the MAC address of the provisioning iface
