Retrieve a core file from a Nortel Contivity Secure IP Services Gateway 1100?

Problem Description

Goal:
How to retrieve a core file from a Contivity Secure IP Services Gateway 1100?
Fact:
Contivity
Contivity 1xx0
Contivity Bluefin

Problem Resolution

Fix:
The 1100 (Bluefin) has no hard drive to write a core file to. In the event of a core, the core file can be written to a designated FTP server on the private network.
To set up the FTP server to receive coredumps;
From the GUI:
Navigate Admin – Administrator screen, click on the Enabled checkbox and enter the appropriate FTP server information (IP address, path, user ID and password) under the FTP Coredump tab.
From the CLI:
CES#config t
CES(config)#ftp-coredump enable
CES(config)#ftp-coredump host <IP address of the ftp server> path <path to put the files to> user-id <user-id to be used for the ftp session> password <password for the ftp session>
Since  many Contivity Gateways may be configured to coredump to the same location, the core files will have a more descriptive name: core_date_24-hour-time_management_ip.mem.
