Description Roman Plevka 2020-03-10 09:51:48 UTC
Description of problem:
When I try to change a pxeloader of a host in a build mode, the foreman does not run the TFTP config redeploy, it only overwrites the DHCP reservation.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
6.7.0 snap 15

Steps to Reproduce:
1. create a new host with GRUB2 BIOS pxeloader
2. watch the grub config being deployed to tftp
3. the grub.cfg for the host should contain "initrd" and "linux" commands inside the menu entries
4. edit the host (while still in boot mode)
5. update the pxe loader to "GRUB2 UEFI" and save
6. notice that the orchestration doesn't run any TFTP task (probably dhcp one only)
7. see that the PXELoader attribute of the host is now updated (in foreman)
8. check the grub config file on tftp again and notice that it is still the old config (linux, initrd commands instead of linuxefi and initrdefi)

Actual results:
foreman doesn't reflect the pxeloader change and skips TFTP file redeployment

Expected results:
foreman should regenerate the bootloader config based on the relevant changes to the host record

No this is still a problem, the other BZ resolved conflicts.

Thank you for your interest in Satellite 6. We have evaluated this request, and while we recognize that it is a valid request, we do not expect this to be implemented in the product in the foreseeable future. This is due to other priorities for the product, and not a reflection on the request itself. We are therefore closing this out as WONTFIX. If you have any concerns about this feel free to contact your Red Hat Account Team. Thank you.
