One of our cluster running cobbler provisioning software required to install several nodes with RHEL 7.1. When I tried to upload an ISO image of RHEL 7.1 to the cobbler, it stops and shows an error that RHEL 7.1 is not available in signatures. Signatures defines which OS cobbler can support for provisioning. By running following command you can list available signatures available for your cobbler installation.

If your cluster is connected to internet, you can update signatures files straight away using following command, it will update it with latest
12345 sudo cobbler signature updatetask started: 2015-10-21_222926_sigupdatetask started (id=Updating Signatures, time=Wed Oct 21 22:29:26 2015)Successfully got file from http://cobbler.github.com/signatures/latest.json*** TASK COMPLETE ***
But like me if your cluster is not connected to internet directly then you will required to download latest signatures files from following website and upload to proper location. Following steps should be follow to do it
1 .Download Signature file
Download signature file on your workstation
1 wget http://cobbler.github.com/signatures/latest.json
2. Upload to cluster
Upload the signature to the cobbler management server
1 scp latest.json /var/lib/cobbler/distro_signatures.json
3. Restart Service
Restart the cobbler service to take effect.
1 sudo /etc/init.d/cobblerd restart
