How to force a DUMP on ESXi host

Sometimes, we might need to generate a DMUP on esxi systems. This will probably help identifying possible unexpected outages. The process is so simple. 

  • Log into the host system
  • Type #vsish and get the console
  • Then, type set /reliability/crashme/panic

This will generate a PSOD, then you can try investigating the DUMP file
