Description Caspar Zhang 2012-08-13 23:34:31 EDT
Description of problem:

Currently several customers fail on kdump local test due to `vmcore not found` issue, however the vmcores did saved. After investigation, we have the following:

there are several disks attched, but the disk driver load sequence is different in first kernel and kdump kernel. So /dev/sda1 in first kernel might be /dev/sdb1 in second kernel. Then in kdump kernel, system tries to mount a incorrect partition, which is likely to cause error.

Thus, we need to use UUID or LABEL to avoid such loading sequence mismatch issue.
