Description Dan 2006-08-05 05:59:08 EDT
Description of problem: Netdump client is a SuperMicro SYS-6024-32R w dual Xeon 3Ghz, 2gigs ECC, AOC- LPZCR2 with SATA Raid 5 and 5 160gig SATA drives running SATA 1.5. Kernel: Linux databahn 2.6.17-1.2157_FC5smp #1 SMP Tue Jul 11 23:24:16 EDT 2006 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): netdump-0.7.16-5 How reproducible: Just try to run it, you'll see. It doesn't work. Steps to Reproduce: 1. Install netdump-server rpm on a dedicated server. 2. Assign a password to the netdump account. 3. Start netdump-server. 4. Install netdump rpm on client system. 5. Edit /etc/sysconfig/netdump on the client, enable option NETDUMPADDR and NETDUMPMACADDR 6. service netdump propagate (then enter netdump password) 7. service netdump start ("Actual results:" section shows what happens next) Actual results: initializing netdump FATAL: Module netdump not found. [FAILED] initializing netconsole FATAL: Error inserting netconsole (/lib/modules/2.6.17- 1.2157_FC5smp/kernel/drivers/net/netconsole.ko): Unknown symbol in module, or unknown parameter (see dmesg) [FAILED] /var/log/messages shows: Aug 5 02:34:25 databahn netdump:: inserting netconsole module with arguments magic1=0x4ad5b430 magic2=0x98c51163 netdump=@1 0.4.0.20/eth0,firstname.lastname@example.org/00:0E:0C:2C:52:BD Aug 5 02:34:25 databahn kernel: netconsole: Unknown parameter `netlog' Expected results: I don't know what happens when netdump works. This is the first time I've tried to use it. Additional info: The reason I want to run netdump is: While running http://ltp.sf.net on this SuperMicro server with `runalltests.sh`, the server crashed after about 15 minutes. The dead console log had some information relating to the accraid module. I figured if I could give the kernel developers a core dump of the crash it might help them to find and solve the problem. Enter my attempt at running netdump. Please fix netdump for FC5. :-)
Comment 1 Sergio Pascual 2006-09-08 10:49:59 EDT
I have exactly the same problem. The module netdump.ko seems to have disappeared in kernels 2.6.17.
Comment 2 Tom Hughes 2006-10-19 05:10:58 EDT
If you only try and use netlog then it also fails, as it gives the netconsole module an argument (netlog) that it doesn't recognise.
Comment 3 John Holmstadt 2007-01-22 16:45:21 EST
Anyone come up with a workaround on this? Is this excluded from the kernel now, or was that kernel option just missed at compile time?
Comment 4 Jan "Yenya" Kasprzak 2007-05-25 12:29:07 EDT
I suggest to change the distribution field to FC6, as the bug is present also in FC6, and FC5 will be EOLed soon. Also it is not only for i386, but also for x86_64 (but bugzilla does not allow me to change the arch or distribution field). Any news on this front? I need to use netdump on a FC6 system. BTW, this bug is probably a duplicate of bug #161068, which has been closed two years(!) ago as "CLOSED NEXTRELEASE". Which next release do they mean?
