Description Roman Plevka 2020-06-08 13:41:45 UTC
Description of problem:
After installation, TFTP already contains grub.cfg deployed from outdate version of PXEGrub template:
[ see attachment "PXEGrub2_gd_old.txt"]

Despite the fact that the `pxegrub2_mac` snippet template looks different now:
[ see attachment "PXEGrub2_gd_new.txt"]

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
6.8.0 snap3

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. install satellite (with tftp and httpboot enabled)
2. check the rendered template:
3. Build PXE Default template
4. check the tempalte agani
5. observe the differences

Actual results:
grub.cfg contains outdated content (from old versions) until it is manually redeployed

Expected results:
The grub.cfg deployed by installer should correspond to the version present on satellite

Yes we have decided to require users to hit the Build PXE Default in order to boot unknown systems.
