Description Hirotaka Sasaki 2005-05-11 01:47:33 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.1; SV1; .NET CLR 1.1.4322)

Description of problem:
Normally, if /proc/sys/kernel/panic is > 0, system reboots after disudmp finished. But on SMP machine, system doesn't reboot after diskdump (or netdump) finished.

When CPU#0 executed diskdump, system reboots. But When other CPU executed diskdump, system doesn't reboot.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Configure diskdump (or netdump).
2.echo 1 > /proc/sys/kernel/sysrq
3.echo 5 > /proc/sys/kernel/panic
4.echo c > /proc/sysrq-trigger

Diskdump completed, but system stopped at following:

 CPU frozen: #0#1#3
 CPU#2 is executing diskdump.
 start dumping
 check dump partition...
 dumping memory.
 <6>disk_dump: diskdump succeeded
 <0>Rebooting in 5 seconds..

Actual Results:  System doesn't reboot after diskdump finished.

Expected Results:  If /proc/sys/kernel/panic is > 0, system reboot after diskdump finished.

Could you first check on whether Update1 kernel has the same problem as the
kernel that you used?
