Thank you to everyone who listened to me on the EMEA vBrownbag. Here are copies of documentation and scripts on how to configure ESXi to use the remote dump collector.
Check the ESXi Dump Collector Configuration Example:
Setting the ESXi Dump Collector Example:
Test Host by Causing PSOD
Run the following command via SSH or Direct Shell. We can see that the server is now doing a network coredump.
vsish -e set /reliability/crashMe/Panic 1
#Post-Installation Changes If you wish to change the default port or maxsize of the dump, these can be changed by modifying the vmconfig-netdump.xml file. See below link with instructions on how to make the changes and restart the Dump Collector Service. KB2002954
