I am trying to configure kdump so that the kernel dump file gets saved onto a remote host. I currently have this configured and working, but I've got it setup so that everything runs under the root account. The problem is we normally set "PermitRootLogin" in /etc/ssh/sshd_config to "no" on our systems. I have to change this to "yes" in order for the dump to work correctly.
Is it possible for me to configure /etc/kdump.conf so that kdump can be run as another user? I have tried using sshkeys (id_rsa) for a different user account but was unsuccessful. I wonder if it because our local and remote systems (both RHEL7.5) are running in FIPS mode (/proc/sys/crypto/fips_enabled = 1). This seems to prevent me from successfully running "kdumpctl propagate" because it returns with "ERROR: FIPS mode initialized".
Any suggestions/thoughts would be greatly appreciated!
