RHEL Engineering is moving the tracking of its product development work on RHEL 6 through RHEL 9 to Red Hat Jira (issues.redhat.com). If you're a Red Hat customer, please continue to file support cases via the Red Hat customer portal. If you're not, please head to the "RHEL project" in Red Hat Jira and file new tickets here. Individual Bugzilla bugs in the statuses "NEW", "ASSIGNED", and "POST" are being migrated throughout September 2023. Bugs of Red Hat partners with an assigned Engineering Partner Manager (EPM) are migrated in late September as per pre-agreed dates. Bugs against components "kernel", "kernel-rt", and "kpatch" are only migrated if still in "NEW" or "ASSIGNED". If you cannot log in to RH Jira, please consult article #7032570. That failing, please send an e-mail to the RH Jira admins at rh-issues@redhat.com to troubleshoot your issue as a user management inquiry. The email creates a ServiceNow ticket with Red Hat. Individual Bugzilla bugs that are migrated will be moved to status "CLOSED", resolution "MIGRATED", and set with "MigratedToJIRA" in "Keywords". The link to the successor Jira issue will be found under "Links", have a little "two-footprint" icon next to it, and direct you to the "RHEL project" in Red Hat Jira (issue links are of type "https://issues.redhat.com/browse/RHEL-XXXX", where "X" is a digit). This same link will be available in a blue banner at the top of the page informing you that that bug has been migrated.

Fixed In Version: rhel-system-roles-1.11.0-1.el8
Doc Type: Bug Fix
Doc Text:
.The Kdump System Role does not ignore hosts anymore Previously, the Kdump role ignored managed nodes that do not have memory reserved for crash kernel, and consequently completed with the “Success” status even when not configuring the system correctly. The role has been redesigned to fail in cases where managed nodes do not have memory reserved for crash kernel, and to prompt the user to set the `kdump_reboot_ok` variable to `true` to correctly configure kdump on managed nodes. As a result, the Kdump role now does not ignore hosts, and either completes successfully with the correct configuration, or fails with an error message describing what users need to do to fix the issue.
