How to manually regenerate core dump files in VMware ESX and ESXi

To regenerate a core dump file on ESX and ESXi 4.x:
  1. Log into the ESX host:
  2. Determine the device identifiers for the core partition(s) by running the command:

    esxcfg-dumppart -t

    The output appears similar to:

    mpx.vmhba2:C0:T0:L0:2      /dev/sda2

  3. Change to a directory with sufficient space to store the core dump file. For example:

    cd /vmfs/volumes/DatastoreName/

  4. Dump the partition contents to a file by running the command:

    esxcfg-dumppart --copy --devname "/vmfs/devices/disks/<identifier>"

    Where <identifier> is the value recorded in step 2. For example:

    esxcfg-dumppart --copy --devname "/vmfs/devices/disks/mpx.vmhba2:C0:T0:L0:2"

Hello Folks!

This blog is about sharing my experience and things that I have learned in Virtualization. I will add valuable information, blogs and videos links from other websites too. This blog is basically for newbie’s in virtualization and of course experienced campaigners are also most welcome to share their knowledge.

I’m working hard to make this blog a single place to learn and get expertise in VMware ESX & ESXi.

So let’s get started!  🙂
