We have servers that we wish to provision using UEFI and from testing we
have found that iPXE is the most stable across all cases.
I have found the following code in "foreman-proxy/modules/tftp/server.rb"
which indicates that iPXE does serve a "Global Default" through the
pxelinux TFTP directory.
class Ipxe < Server
def pxeconfig_file mac
In the foreman provisioning templates Web UI. Can i have a "iPXE global
default" that manages to "default.ipxe"? Also a 01-<mac>.ipxe for builds?
