  1. Volume Manager 3.03 / Solaris 8 savecore: [ID 686316 auth.error] no dump device configured


    All,
    We have an E220R with an attached A1000 array. We installed Volume manager
    3.0.3
    and encapsulated the root disk and mirrored it. We are now getting the following
    error:
    savecore: [ID 686316 auth.error] no dump device configured

    Here's dumpadm output.
    # dumpadm
    Dump content: kernel pages
    Dump device: none (dumps disabled)
    Savecore directory: /var/crash/oregano
    Savecore enabled: yes

    Trying to enable dumpadm fails

    # swap -l
    swapfile dev swaplo blocks free
    /dev/vx/dsk/swapvol 172,6 16 4197856 4197856
    /dev/vx/dsk/swapvol2 172,7 16 4197856 4197856
    # dumpadm -d /dev/vx/dsk/swapvol
    dumpadm: dumps not supported on /dev/vx/dsk/swapvol

    Any ideas?
    Thanks in advance.
    Robert
