Have you installed ESXi on localhard disk?? During installation whether you selected harddisk or not.
Yes it's installed on the local harddisk of my host.
I didn't change anything special. Default insallation.
Can you please post the output :
partedUtil getptbl /vmfs/devices/disks/<local device>
/dev/disks # partedUtil getptbl /vmfs/devices/disks/vml.0200000000300000003e17a

Local disks partition only showing vmfs partition. No other partition are created. That's the reason your configuration setting are not persistent.

Output should come something like this.

Try running these two commands from a Putty session to the host.
1. esxcli system coredump partition set -u
(this resets the patition to a unconfigured status)
2. esxcli system coredump partition set -e true -s
(This sets the partition pre-existing to enabled with the smart switch to automatically enable on restart).
Thank you Spencer, your suggestion worked for me.
