This test case verifies that a crash dump can be generated for a Fedora Xen DomU.

How to test

  1. Make sure your dom0 is configured to automatically dump core when a guest crashes. This is typically set in the /etc/xen/xend-config.sxp file; you'll need to change the parameter #(enable-dump no) to (enable-dump yes), and restart xend on the dom0.
  2. Inside the guest, run
    $> echo c > /proc/sysrq-trigger

Expected Results

  1. The guest should crash, and the dom0 should take over and dump a core.
