Configuring ESXi network coredump settings

Its useful to configure your VCSA as a network dump collector for when your ESXi hosts experience a PSOD, just make sure that the “ESXi Dump Collector” service is running on your VCSA.  The host configuration via ESXCLI is as follows:

esxcli system coredump network set --interface-name vmk0 --server-ipv4 xx.xx.xx.xx --server-port 6500
esxcli system coredump network set --enable true
esxcli system coredump network get
esxcli system coredump network check
/sbin/auto-backup.sh

You can also configure this via host profiles if they are in use within your infrastructure.
