Description of problem:
service kdump restart fails because mkdumprd fails to generate a new image.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Recent development builds.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Configure KDUMP with ssh
3. SSH keys get exchanged successfully
4. Dialog appears saying that the location is unreachable
KDUMP is not started
Kdump get's started
Look at /var/log/messages for the mkdumprd failure
The error appeared because I used a user which hadn't had enough rights to access the remote /var/crash directory.
(Discovered by adding -v to the mkdumprd args in /etc/init.d/kdump)
