Change crash dump area.

Hi guys,
i need to chage a dump area from /var/adm/crash,
in a new VERITAS file system :

/dev/vx/dsk/vg01/lv_crash
8388608 1852827 6133698 23% /crash

Is it possible?
What is the procedure?
Can i use a veritas volume and one external disk?

Hllo gigiz.
checkout the following config file, it should be possible to change.

Yes.

What is the procedure?

(Edit the /etc/rc.config.d/savecrash file or use crashconf [man 1M crashconf]).

Can i use a veritas volume and one external disk?

Yes, you use external disk, aslong as your properly put information on the "savecrash" config file.
Problems are common to all, but attitude makes the difference

Yes you can do that. We use a different vg and modfy the /etc/rc.config.d/savecrash to point to that vg. Crash files can get very large.
