Enabling DOSD (Dump Of System Disk) on Alpha and I64 Systems:

You must correctly enable the DUMPSTYLE system parameter to enable the bugcheck code
to write the system dump file to an alternate device.

Enable the DOSD bit of the DUMPSTYLE system parameter by setting bit 2.

For example,
enter the value of 4 at the SYSBOOT> prompt to designate an uncompressed physical
dump to an alternate disk with minimal console output:

SYSBOOT> SET DUMPSTYLE 4

The HP OpenVMS System Management Utilities Reference Manual and online help contain
details about the DUMPSTYLE system parameter.


You can set DUMP DEVICE by using below instructions:

On I64 systems, use the OpenVMS I64 Boot Manager (BOOT_OPTIONS.COM) utility to specify the dump device environment variable DUMP_DEV at the OpenVMS DCL prompt:

$ @SYS$MANAGER:BOOT_OPTIONS

Alternatively, you can use the EFI for OpenVMS (I64 only) VMS_SET utility to
specify the dump device environment variable DUMP_DEV at the EFI console prompt:

Shell> FSn:\EFI\VMS\VMS_SET DUMP_DEV device-name[,...]
(where: FSn: is any bootable FAT file-structured partition that includes the VMS_SET
utility)

For Example and more information please Refer to

HP OpenVMS System Managerâ s Manual, Volume 2: Tuning, Monitoring, and Complex Systems.
Section 2.7

( 2.Managing Page, Swap, and Dump Files
Section: Writing the System Dump File to an Alternate Disk )
