Hi @SirHaschke ,

Please have a look at the following KB on how to insert a coredump configuration on the ESXi host.

Short summary of the commands you need to execute:


#Get the current coredump partition configuration
esxcli system coredump partition get
#Get the current coredump partitions
esxcli system coredump partition list
#Set new coredump partition
esxcli system coredump partition set --partition="xxxxxx"
esxcli system coredump partition set --enable true
#Verify if the coredump configuration is now running
esxcli system coredump partition list


 This should help you get on your way! 

Let me know if you have any other questions.

Are you sure there is enough space to save the CoreDump files in your current datastore?! Is it possible to try to save them on another datastore with more free space? and also check the warning again please, after change the coredump partition ...
