That's because there isn't anything special about it. Configure kdump to use whatever storage you have mapped to the local workstations.

Thanks for the pointer. We decided to try first on the machine which has same configuration wbut is not diskless. We tried to crash that system, it shows that it has invoked the crash kernel, but while saving to the /var/crash, it says, fsck, unable to resolve UUID, unable to .


Following is the configuration of kdump.conf, (everything else is default) :
core_collector makedumpfile -c --message-level 1 -d 31

/etc/fstab has entry :
UUID=09009a89-438b-45c3-ae28-693dc84044bb / ext4 defaults 1 1
UUID=5fc2b735-955f-412a-847c-5797882b26e7 /boot ext4 defaults 1 2
tmpfs /dev/shm tmpfs defaults 0 0
devpts /dev/pts devpts gid=5,mode=620 0 0
sysfs /sys sysfs defaults 0 0
proc /proc proc defaults 0 0

Also, /boot/grub/grub.conf has entry :

default=1
timeout=5
splashimage=(hd0,0)/grub/splash.xpm.gz
hiddenmenu
