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.

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Configure KDUMP with ssh
2. Apply
3. SSH keys get exchanged successfully
4. Dialog appears saying that the location is unreachable
Actual results:
KDUMP is not started

Expected results:
Kdump get's started

Additional info:
Look at /var/log/messages for the mkdumprd failure

Comment 3 Fabian Deutsch 2013-01-03 10:07:44 UTC
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)
