(Doc ID 2210865.1)

Last updated on DECEMBER 11, 2016

Applies to:

Oracle VM - Version 3.2.1 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


Sometimes customer reports a Solaris VM hang issue and you instructs customer to get a core dump file with xm dump-core command.

However Solaris team comes back saying that they cannot analyze the core dump file generated on Oracle VM x86 Dom0.



No change is applied to the system.
