The crash should generate a file called 'core' or 'core.<pid>'.
If the core file is compressed please decompress it before using getappcore.
Then run the following:
# getappcore -ur <SR/Case number> -b <path to application executable> <path to core file>
For example, it might look something like this if perl were crashing and the core file was named core in the /tmp directory:
# getappcore -ur 00123456 -b /usr/bin/perl /tmp/core
This command will create the tarball file that the support team needs.
-f Automatically upload archive to the SUSE FTP server using FTPES
getappcore -ur 00123456 -b /bin/rpm /core.15832
Please note in older versions of getappcore the parameters still show the URL of the old ftp server:
-u Automatically upload archive to ftp.novell.com:/incoming
Update the supportutils package to the latest available version. After the update the option will show:
-u Automatically upload archive to the SUSE FTP server using HTTPS
In case of SLES11 SP4 LTSS don't use the -u parameter and instead upload the archive manually.
