Is kdump working and supported on my system?

Updated -

Issue:

  • As of RHEL6.2, a successful kdump test is required for all Red Hat certified systems.

Environment:

  • RHEL6
  • Hardware Certification

Resolution:

  • As of RHEL6.2, a succesful kdump test is required for all Red Hat certified systems.
  • However, RHEL6.0, and RHEL6.1 certifications may optionally use a RHEL6.2 kernel to pass this requirement as well.
  • If this knowledge base article is linked to a RHEL6.0 or RHEL6.1 system certification, please assume a RHEL6.2 kernel was used to pass the kdump test requirement.
