Description WANG Chao 2012-03-27 23:32:02 EDT
Description of problem:
When configure kdump to dump vmcore to a nfs server, we append such a line like `net nfs.server:/mnt/testarea/nfs` to /etc/kdump.conf.
And run `kdumpctl restart`, this nfs dump config is treated as ssh dump.

In /usr/bin/kdumpctl line 201:
local SSH_TARGET=`echo -n $DUMP_TARGET|sed '/.*@/p'`

sed should be called with option -n to remain slience when DUMP_TARGET is a nfs server like 'nfs.server:/mnt/testarea/nfs'.
Then nfs function check_ssh_config will return 1 to not to config nfs like a ssh dump

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.sed -i 's;\(/bin/sh\);\1 -x;' /usr/bin/kdumpctl
2.echo nfs.server:/mnt/testarea/nfs > /etc/kdump.conf
3.kdumpctl restart
Actual results:
kdumpctl didn't respect nfs dump option in /etc/kdump.conf

Expected results:
nfs is treated its own way.
