Description Roman Plevka 2020-02-17 13:27:08 UTC
Description of problem:
all installations using pxegrub2 templates end up in boot loop after the provisioning is done and the target template is switch to the "pxegrub2 default local boot".

Grub2 tries to fetch  and load its own config over and over again, causing infinite loop

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
6.7.0 snap#11

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Try to provision a host using PxeGRUB2 bootloader
2. after the os installation is done, wait for the reboot and notice the os is not booting

Actual results:
os doesn't pass the 2nd stage bootloader, stuck in a loop of loading grub2 config from tftp.
