Satellite 6 TFTP boot file legacy grub conversion script
This script is used to convert the tftp boot files (found in /var/lib/tftpboot/pxelinux.cfg/) which are automatically generated by Satellite 6 into the old legacy grub format. Why is this useful? Recently I encountered some HP servers which have an additional 10GbE card in one of the PCI-E slots on the machine which is used for the PXE boot. Unfortunately this additional interface only supports UEFI boot and not classic bios boot. By default Satellite 6 uses the shim image for UEFI but this doesn’t work with the older Linux kernel used by RHEL6.X. If this script is executed on a capsule or satellite server which has TFTP enabled, it will automatically replace the boot files using the old format which gives a successful boot for RHEL6.
