2.2.18 Kdump Service Configuration

By default, the Kernel Dump service (Kdump) is enabled is enabled and configured for UEK R3 on x86-64 using the crashkernel=auto setting, but must be manually configured for UEK R2 on i386, which does not support crashkernel=auto.

The following boot-time message indicates that Kdump needs to be configured.

kdump: No crashkernel parameter specified for running kernel

To prevent this message from being displayed, use the Kernel Dump Configuration GUI (system-config-kdump) to configure or disable Kdump. (Bug ID 16242031)
