Thread: Getting a crash dump

    Default Getting a crash dump

    Hi,

    I would like to test whether my server creating a crash dump upon a OS crash. I can see the /etc/sysconfig/kdump config file is configured.

    So I issued the command to kernel panic "echo c > /proc/sysrq-trigger" so it crashed the server but it never create a dump file for some reason. This is HP BL460g7 blade with ASR disabled.

    When I trigger the kernel panic it crashed but stays about 10 minutes (looks like its trying to save a crash dump) but it never. I checked the message logs but cannot see reason why its not dumping.

    SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 11 (x86_64) Sp 1

    Hope you guys can help me.

    Thanks

    Hi
    These are the openSUSE forums, for the enterprise version there is a separate forum over at https://forums.suse.com same username/login. Probably best to post a new thread at https://forums.suse.com/forumdisplay...S-Install-Boot

    Closing thread.
