    Answer should be A: By default the core dump is sent to the local device but if the dump partition is created it is sent to the core dump partition .

    By default, a core dump is saved to the local disk. You can use ESXi Dump Collector to keep core dumps on a network server for use during debugging. ESXi Dump Collector is especially useful for Auto Deploy, but supported for any ESXi 5.0 host. ESXi Dump Collector supports other customization, including sending core dumps to the local disk.
