In a mirrored swap configuration (under Solaris 8), should the dump
/etc/dumpadm.conf be changed to the metadevice for the swap space.... it is
currently set to /dev/dsk/c0d0s1. Problem is the machine is rebooting
if it is panicing it is not leaving a crash dump in the
Server is remote, and I believe it is a hardware issue (it is a 'cheap'
(yes, it is Solaris 8 for x86 (a client's box)). It ran stable for
ages... so I'm guessing
more than likely hardware (fans, ps, memory, etc), but I was unable to
answer about if dumpadm.conf should be updated.
If not... then what does the metadevice do when the system boots and the
space mirror components are no longer in sync (due to a crashdump being
to one 'half' of the mirror) ?
