Description of problem:
When we provision from the standard PXE menu, we can choose which hostgroup template to install the new server from.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
6 beta

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create some hostgroups with associated content views and lifecycle environments
2. Build the PXE default menu from the Provisioning Templates screen
3. PXE boot a new server
4. From the boot menu, select a hostgroup boot option

Actual results:
Machine boots and installs, however once it has registered with foreman, it is not in a hostgroup

Expected results:
The newly installed machine should be in the same hostgroup that we selected in the PXE menu.

Additional info:
Candidate patch:

host ||= Host.new(:name => hostname, :certname => certname) if Setting[:create_new_host_when_facts_are_uploaded]

return Host.new, true if host.nil?

# set hostgroup defaults if provided by a fact
+ hostgroup_fact='foreman_hostgroup'
+ if facts.keys.include?(hostgroup_fact)
+ host.hostgroup = Hostgroup.find_by_title(facts[hostgroup_fact])
+ host.set_hostgroup_defaults
+ end
  1. if we were given a certname but found the Host by hostname we should update the certname
    host.certname = certname if certname.present?
