Oracle VM: How to check if all Virtual Machines are configured to dump a vmcore in the event of a Virtual Machine crash (Doc ID 2059973.1)

Last updated on MARCH 09, 2017

Applies to:

Oracle VM - Version 3.0.1 and later
Linux x86-64

Goal

 This document's goal is to be complementary to Note 1167163.1 and provide simple instructions to verify that all Virtual Machines are configured to dump a vmcore file in case of a Virtual Machine crash.

Note that as mentioned in Document 1167163.1 , the space available on the mount point that hosts /var/xen/dump/ should be verified before altering the vm.cfg configuration and potentially mount a different large partition for that folder.
