Partial configuration of kdump is now supported during auto-installation of the Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization Hypervisor. 'kdump_local=1' can now be used to store core dumps locally, and 'kdump_ssh' and 'kdump_ssh_key' can be used to configure kdump for remote storage of the core dump.

Description haiyang,dong 2013-05-07 06:52:46 UTC
Description of problem:
Right now rhev-h support to configure kdump via nfs/ssh/local for TUI,
but for Automated Installation, it only support to configure kdump via nfs.
So it's better to also support to configure kdump via ssh/local for Automated Installation  

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:

Actual results:
rhev-h only support to configure kdump via nfs for Automated Installation

Expected results:
rhev-h support to configure kdump via nfs/ssh/local for Automated Installation

Resetting this since the attached patch handles something else.

Comment 5 Ryan Barry 2014-06-13 14:59:13 UTC
It does not, or should not, handle another issue, though it's been a while since I've looked at it.

We initially depended on adding support for SSH keys (which happened here: )

The attached patch explicitly handles allowing SSH/local kdump in autoinstall. See:

Comment 6 Fabian Deutsch 2014-06-19 08:12:20 UTC
Sorry, it was my fault while reviewing. I actually mixed up two bugs.

Comment 10 haiyang,dong 2014-11-12 08:49:47 UTC
Test version:

Auto install for kdump
1. Default it will configure kdump with local type- function pass
2. auto install with "disable_kdump" parameter --function pass install with "kdump_ssh+kdump_ssh_key" parameter --function failed

For case 3,could see configuration in kdump page and "/etc/kdump".
But service kdump fails to start by default.For this issue, i have reported a new bug 1163016 to track kdump start failed by default issue.

so this bug has been fixed in in rhevh 6.6 for RHEV 3.5 bulid version, change the status into "VERIFIED"
