Howdy,

Running a round of updates from 6.3 to 6.4 and I’m seeing the following on all the servers.

Want to make sure I’m not going to end up with a kernel panic if I reboot into the new kernel or have any other issues.

Apr 22 11:10:21 www kdump: kexec: unloaded kdump kernel Apr 22 11:10:21 www kdump: stopped Apr 22 11:10:21 www kdump: mkdumprd: failed to make kdump initrd Apr 22 11:10:21 www kdump: failed to start up, config file incorrect

I’ve never touched kdump.conf, or really used kdump at all..

/etc/kdump.conf shows:

#raw /dev/sda5
#ext4 /dev/sda3
#ext4 LABEL=/boot
#ext4 UUID138356-5e61-4ab3-b58e-27507ac41937
#net my.server.com:/export/tmp
#net user@my.server.com path /var/crash core_collector makedumpfile -c –message-level 1 -d 31
#core_collector scp
#core_collector cp –sparse=always
#extra_bins /bin/cp
#link_delay 60
#kdump_post /var/crash/scripts/kdump-post.sh
#extra_bins /usr/bin/lftp
#disk_timeout 30
#extra_modules gfs2
#options modulename options
#default shell
#debug_mem_level 0
#force_rebuild 1
#sshkey /root/.ssh/kdump_id_rsa

Thanks in advance for any help or feedback.
