Please contact Red Hat support to help you with this issue.

I believe cobbler sync (maybe in Permissive) should fix your cobbler/tftpboot setup, especially if you have cobbler-2.0.7-11.el6sat or newer.

We have re-reviewed this bug, as part of an ongoing effort to improve  Satellite/Proxy feature and bug updates, review and backlog.

We believe this bug has been fixed in the latest Satellite 5 version (5.8), so closing the bug as CURRENTRELEASE. Please feel free to re-open in case you discover any issues.
