Description of problem:
Judging from /etc/init.d/diskdump script, we can use "PRESERVEDUMP" option
But this option is not documented any where.
(Man, /usr/share/doc/diskdumputils-1.0.1/ )
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
See inside of /etc/sysconfig/diskdump.
Actual Results: Only DEVICE= is written
Expected Results: This option have to be documented in /usr/share/doc/diskdumputils-<ver>/README
and also /etc/sysconfig/diskdump.
This is not a bug.
PRESERVEDUMP option is not described in any documents intentionally because
this feature is not supported officially.
Since the feature has not been verified yet at all, please do not use this
The feature will be available in the near future.
