I'm struggling to find where you configure the port / repository max size / service startup for the VMware vSphere ESXi Dump Collector (6.7 update 1) in the HTML interface?
It still exists in the FLEX (flash): vSphere Web Client - Home / Administration / System Configuration / Services / VMware vSphere ESXi Dump Collector.
I thought the HTML5 client was fully featured?
Thanks for replay, but what you suggested is configuring the ESXi host and where the host 'sends' the core dump, what I'm looking for is the vCenter configuration, essentially the 'receiver' configuration.
That's the point of my question - I cannot find the 'services' section in the HTML client. Services is there in the older / flash (flex) vsphere client, but I can't find it in the new HTML 'fully featured' client.
Below are screenshots of the same vCenter server, FLEX vs HTML

Thanks again - the services in VMAI don't have any configuration attached to them - you can stop/start.... but you cannot configure ESXi Dump collector, nor can you change the start-up type.
The other article is referencing forwarding of Syslog in the FLEX / FLASH vSphere Web Client interface, not the HTML one.
Thanks for asking this, because I just got mad trying to find it. I am now on vSphere 6.7 U3 (December Patch) and I can't find these settings either. When will this be implemented?
The significance in my opinion is, you go to VAMI enable it and the next time you patch your Appliance, the service is turned off. Now you don't have your dumps the next time something happens, because there is no way to edit the startup policy.
The lack of service startup control and access to the service settings has been reported in the latest RC for the current beta. Advice was that engineering is aware of the issue and that will be addressed in a future release.
sshuck Sorry I have not found a solution yet and I don't have the ability to open a Production SR to ask support for their advice.
Holding out hope for it appearing in v7.0 Update 1.
Just got off the phone with a really nice guy from VMware support. He pointed me to this blog post which is still valid for VCSA 7.0.
Yes, it's not in the UI but it will do the job.
Maybe helpful for some of you...
