I am using Red Hat Enterprise Linux AS release 4 Update 3 machine.
I had problem of running diskdump and saving core dump on scsi device /dev/sdq5.
Then, I downloaded kernel 2.6.9 and patched with patches present in diskdump-1.0.tar.gz. I have patched megaraid diskdump patch for kernel 2.6.9.
Then I compiled the kernel. And installed diskdumputils of version 1.3.15.
Whenever I run "service diskdump start" command. It always fails (I have already run service diskdump initialformat).
I have debugged the script /etc/init.d/diskdump and found that
"/sbin/diskdumpfmt -c /dev/sdq5" command always returns 4.
I tried diskdump for swap device (/dev/sda2). Its failing for swap device also.
Why it is always failing?
Am I missing any configuration?
Any help will be appreciated.
Thanks and regards,
