Failed to generate PXELinux template: undefined method `template' for nil:NilClass

Hello. I'm hoping somebody can give me a hand with this.

I'm seeing the following error that seems to be preventing my hosts from
being marked as "built". They are installing the preseed correctly, and as
far as I can tell are perfectly normal:

Started GET "/unattended/built" for 10.8.0.XXX at Wed Jun 12 17:26:18 -0400
2013
Processing by UnattendedController#built as
Found swift-store-05.va.moz.local
unattended: swift-store-05.va.moz.local is Built!

Rolling back due to a problem:
Adding autosign entry for swift-store-05.va.moz.local
Delete the TFTP configuration for swift-store-05.va.moz.local
Completed 409 Conflict in 231ms

I've looked everywhere for conflicts. It can create a TFTP file correctly
when I first create the machine, but when it comes time to delete the TFTP
after the build process and use a default file it fails and no tftp file
gets created.

I have a "default pxe file" template that looks like this:

DEFAULT menu
PROMPT 0
MENU TITLE PXE Menu
TIMEOUT 200
TOTALTIMEOUT 6000
ONTIMEOUT local

LABEL local
MENU LABEL (local)
MENU DEFAULT
LOCALBOOT 0

Any ideas? Without the host being marked as "built" they are essentially
hamstringed.

Has this been renamed perhaps? There should be template named precisely
as "PXE Localboot Default" which I think Foreman searches for and
reverts to.

Dominic. Thank you. I completely missed that. Once I put the template back
it's working again properly.
