Description Akira Imamura 2007-01-04 16:06:36 EST
Description of problem:
The kdump service should warn users in the case that no dump directory
is specified initially. I think this case is one that admins need to
be aware of in advance.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
kexec-tools-1.101-156.el5

How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Configure kdump.conf so that no dump directory is specified.
2. Run "service kdump restart"
3.
  
Actual results:
The kdump service shows no warning as below.

Stopping kdump:                                            [  OK  ]
Detected /etc/kdump.conf or /boot/efi/efi/redhat/vmlinuz-2.6.18-1.2910.el5 change
Rebuilding /boot/efi/efi/redhat/initrd-2.6.18-1.2910.el5kdump.img
Starting kdump:                                            [  OK  ]


Expected results:
The kdump service shows warning as below.

Stopping kdump:                                            [  OK  ]
Detected /etc/kdump.conf or /boot/efi/efi/redhat/vmlinuz-2.6.18-1.2910.el5 change
Rebuilding /boot/efi/efi/redhat/initrd-2.6.18-1.2910.el5kdump.img
No dump directory specified in /etc/kdump.conf             [WARNING]
Starting kdump:                                            [  OK  ]

Comment 2 Neil Horman 2007-01-04 17:11:21 EST
I disagree.  Not specifying a dump location in kdump.conf is a perfectly valid
configuration (implying that the kdump initramfs should mount the root
filesystem and run init).  no warning is needed for that.
