Some systems set the core file size to 0 in /etc/profile or simiar
Some systems disable cores via /etc/sysct.conf
SElinux is known to block cores, you might need to use dumpdir=/var/run/pluto/ for that

> We do need temperate solution for this ipsec restart issue due to Pluto failures while we are stopping ipsec. As you said, ipsec will restart once crashes happen. Is there any way not to restart ipsec for any reason when the ipsec is being intentionally stopped by command "service ipsec stop"?

plutorestartoncrash=no can prevent the restarts, but obviously it is not specific to "service ipsec stop"
