    Enabling the Core Dump from Boot Mode

    To enable the core dump from Boot mode:

    1. Access Boot mode by reloading the SRP module; then press the mb key sequence (case insensitive) during the countdown.
    2. Specify where the system should transfer the core dump file. To send the file to an FTP server, enter the IP address of the FTP server and the name of the directory on the server to which the system will transfer the file. To send the core dump file to NVS memory, use the local keyword. Local core dumps—stored in NVS—are enabled by default.
      :boot##exception dump CORE_DUMPS
    3. Set the IP address and mask of the system interface over which you want to send the core dump file. You can optionally include an IP address mask.
      :boot##exception source
    4. Specify the gateway through which the system sends the core dump file to the FTP server.
      :boot##exception gateway
    5. (Optional) Set a username and password for FTP access to the server where you transferred the core dump file. The default settings are the username anonymous and no password. You can specify the number 8 before the username and before the password to encrypt these values. By default, the username and password are not encrypted.
      :boot##exception protocol ftp user_name user_password
    6. Reload the operating system. You can reload the system software (.rel) file and the configuration (.cnf) file.

      Note: Reloading the standby SRP causes high availability to be temporarily disabled until the standby SRP reloads and resynchronizes with the active SRP.
