How do I retrieve a core dump from an AP in the event of a process crash?

Aruba Employee

Product and Software: This article applies to all Aruba controllers and ArubaOS 2.x and 3.x code.

 

The dump server is a TFTP server that is used by AP to dump the core in event of process crash on the AP.

 

In the ArubaOS 2.x release, it is configured under ap location, and in the ArubaOS 3.x release, it is configurable under ap system profile.

 

Filename

 

ArubaOS 2.x :

core.<program>.<ap-location-code>.pid

 

ArubaOS 3.x:

core.<program>.<ap-ip-address>.pid

 

CLI Examples

 

ArubaOS 2.x: 

(Aruba5000) #configure t 

(Aruba5000) (config) #ap location 0.0.0 

(Aruba5000) (sap-config location 0.0.0) #dump-server <ip_address_of_tftp_server>

 

ArubaOS 3.x:

(Aruba5000) #configure t

(Aruba5000) (config) #ap system-profile default 

(Aruba5000) (AP system profile "default") #dump-server <ip_address_of_tftp_server>

 

WebUI

 

ArubaOS 2.x :

Browse to Configuration > Advanced > WLAN > General > and configure the IP address of the TFTP server to be used as the dump server under "AP debugging and logging".

 

ArubaOS 3.x:

Browse to Configuration > Wireless > AP Configuration > and edit the AP group for which the dump server needs to be configured. Browse to AP > AP System Profile and configure the dump server in the window on right hand side.

Just to clarify, the option of configuring "dump-server" in AP System Profile applies to all codes after 3.x, including 5.x and 6.x.
