kdump FAILED to load

Postby PatPeter » 2009/12/19 06:44:33

When my server starts I received this text:

Code: Select all
No kdump kernel image found:                       [WARNING]
Tried to locate /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.18-164.6.1.el5.centos.plus
Loading kdump:                                     [FAILED]


And now it says a similar message:

Code: Select all
No kdump kernel image found:                       [WARNING]
Tried to locate /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.18-164.9.1.el5
Loading kdump:                                     [FAILED]


I tried turning kdump off and then back on, but to no avail.

Did you configure it? See http://lists.centos.org/pipermail/cento ... 74883.html - first hit on a google of
Code: Select all
kdump site:centos.org
.

See also CentOS 5 FAQ#14 which is a bit different, but would lead you to the same tool.

I always configure kdump when I install CentOS. As said I have tried enabling and disabling it several times now. I have changed the memory each time between 128-256-and-512.

As per the http://www.lmgtfy.com/?q=kdump+site%3Acentos.org :

1st) About building the crash file when I do not need to generate crash files, I need to generate the kdump kernel image.
2nd) kdump loads at startup, it just does not locate the kernel image.
3rd) Where to save the crash file to, I want it to generate the kernel image.
4th) Panic occurs during runtime, mine occurs at boottime.
5th) This topic.

And I used system-config-kdump to enable/disable and change the memory amount of kdump.

I don't quite follow what you mean by 1st) ... 5th), except that it is understood that you need the kdump kernel image.

Check for full filesystems, particularly /boot / or /var.

By 1st) through 5th) I meant what the first 5 results of:

Code: Select all
kdump site:centos.org


Came up with. It does not matter I found the solution:

I thought I had all the non-Xen versions of my kernels installed, but the most recent time I reinstalled my server it did not add them, so all I had to do was add all the non-Xen kernels with my Package Updater.
