Will kdump support multiple target locations to save a vmcore ?

Solution Verified - Updated -


Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 and 6 currently only supports configuring one target destination to store vmcores.

Now kdump only support one target at one time, such as local file system or nfs.

It cannot support both local file system and networked destination through the default configuration.
