Reboot error

I have a question about an error I received while booting my K210. To give the scenario, I replaced all my disk drives on the machine with larger capacity disks. Then I rebooted the machine with my make_recovery tape, directing the tape to boot from one of the new disks. Everything worked out fine, however when the machine when into its final reboot, I received the following error??? Save core image if needed.... Fail. Does anyone have any insight on this error and also how to resolve it?

Re: Reboot error

If you want this option enabled(it is now) then you want to created a filesystem named: /var/adm/crash with about 2 gig of space.
If you do not want this then turn the option off in the /etc/rc.config.d/savecore set it to 0..Check out the man pages on savecore.

Re: Reboot error

You had a system panic/crash.

use lvlnboot -v
to see where dump is defined and post up the output of crashconf.

It works for me (tm)
