[Bug 1528759] Re: ISST-LTE: kdump service fails to start on Ubuntu14.04.4 lpar.



This is expected behavior.  When an upstart job exists for a service,
which is the case for kdump-tools, the $ service command will execute
(see /usr/sbin/service) :

 $ status kdump-tools

On a systemd enabled system (Wily) you would get :

$ service kdump-tools status
● kdump-tools.service - Kernel crash dump capture service
   Loaded: loaded (/lib/systemd/system/kdump-tools.service; enabled; vendor preset: enabled)
   Active: active (exited) since mar. 2016-01-05 09:22:24 CET; 5h 41min ago
  Process: 3489 ExecStart=/etc/init.d/kdump-tools start (code=exited, status=0/SUCCESS)
 Main PID: 3489 (code=exited, status=0/SUCCESS)
    Tasks: 0 (limit: 512)
   Memory: 0B
      CPU: 0
   CGroup: /system.slice/kdump-tools.service

So I agree with the last comment : using kdump-config status is the way
to go.
