PXElinux file is not getting generated under /var/lib/tftpboot/pxelinux.cfg/* while rebuilding the host in Red Hat Satellite 6.5

Solution Verified - Updated -


  • Custom snippet with the instance variable is not working after the Satellite upgrade to 6.5.
  • Customized template : "PXELinux default local boot" and added the snippet details in it.
kind: PXELinux
name: REDHAT - PXELinux default local boot
model: ProvisioningTemplate
<%# This template has special name (do not change it) and it is used for booting already provisioned hosts. -%>
# This file was deployed via '<%= @template_name %>' template
<%= snippet "RED - include" -%>
  • Syntax used in Red Hat Satellite 6.4 is :
@foo = 'bar'

<%= snippet "INCLUDE" %>

<% if @foo == 'bar' %>

  • Rebuilding the host using below command is not generating the PXElinux (01-00-50-56-a1-f0-be) file under /var/lib/tftpboot/pxelinux.cfg/* in Red Hat Satellite 6.5
 # hammer host rebuild-config --name client.example.com --only TFTP
   Configuration successfully rebuilt.
