Answer:

Navigate to:

Config -> Full Config -> Box -> Advanced Configuration -> Bootloader.

Click the Configuration Mode on the life side bar.

Click the Switch to Advanced option

A new option will appear, Click on Crash Kernel

Check the ?Enable Crash Kernel Loading?

Sometimes this is all that is needed, other times a reboot will be required, to test if the option is properly enabled navigate to SSH and enter the following command:
 

/opt/phion/modules/box/boxother/bootloader/bin/activate
 

If it prints out a failure, a reboot will be required.

After a reboot verify that it is running with the following command:

service kdump status

kdump will now log any crash information into: /var/phion/crash/kernel/

It also recommended that the user hook a host pc to the serial and telnet in, and dump all output to a log file as well.
