test run log

Description of problem:
The rhcert tool is not able to verify kdump image.The rhcert tool is not able to find actual path of the vmlinux file.

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






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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:

1.Install the rhcert tool on RHEL6.7
2.Install kernel-debuginfo and and kernel-debuginfo-common rpm
2.Run the Kdump local test
3.Check the result in /var/log/rhcert/run/x/...

Actual results:
The test script is not able to find the actual path of vmlinux file and hence not able to verify the vmcore file

Expected results:

The test should be able to identify the path of vmlinux file and be able to verify the vmcore file

Actual results:

Expected results:

You are going to need to install the matching kernel-debuginfo for the kernel the system has booted otherwise you get the crash error not being able to find vmlinux.  Note that the installed version of kernel-debuginfo has a kernel version specific directory hence the error.

# rpm -q kernel-debuginfo

# pwd

# ls -l
-rwxr-xr-x.  1 root root 135624055 Jan  6 13:09 vmlinux

# rpm -q kernel-debuginfo

# pwd

# ls -l
-rwxr-xr-x.  1 root root 135375691 Jul  1  2015 vmlinux

Working after trying the above work around.
Comment 3 Travis Gummels 2016-03-15 09:48:42 EDT

It is necessary that for the version of the kernel running on the system that will have the kdump test performed that a matching version of kernel-debuginfo be installed.  There needs to be version parity between the two packages, kernel and kernel-debuginfo, for the test to work properly.
