How do I configure kdump for use with the RHEL 6, 7, 8 High Availability Add-On?

Updated -


A cluster node that encounters a kernel panic will be fenced immediately. If the cluster is configured to use power fencing, the failed node will be rebooted. This presents a problem when using the kdump crash recovery service since power fencing will reboot the failed node before kdump core collection can complete.
