Hi All, I am having an issue getting remote netdump set-up correctly.
I have followed the following kb exactly.VMware KB: Troubleshooting the ESXi Dump Collector service in VMware vSphere 5.x
esxcli system coredump network get
Host VNic: vmk0
Network Server IP: <reports correct ip>
Network Server Port: 6500
esxcli system coredump network check
Verified the configured netdump server is running
# nc -z -w 1 -s <correct ip> -u <correct ip> 6500
Connection to <correct ip> port [udp/*] succeeded!
however nothing hits my server and the logs remove empty in %appdata%vmware\net dump collector service\data or \logs
Seems to be able to communicate fine it just can't pass the logs.
the server is just a physical 2008 r2 server no vmware installed firewall open to receive data on 6500 ports open correctly
any one had similar issues with this?
take a look at that
and you can create an on demand panic to test it:
vsish -e set /reliability/crashMe/Panic 1
