SUSE Manager 4.3.7



After updating to cobbler 3.3.3-150400.5.30.1 EFI enabled PXE boot clients receive an empty menu. Checking /srv/tftpboot/grub/x86_64_menu_items.cfg shows no content, rebuilding a distribution does not repopulate the entries. 


Please open a request with SUSE Technical Support to receive a Program Temporary Fix (PTF).


A problem with the architecture filter code that is responsible for creating the menus.
