To carry out a system dump on Solaris while the server is running:

 1. Create a filesystem with sufficient space , e.g. 2Gb for a server with
    8Gb of memory
 2. Configure dump to use this filesystem:dumpadm -d filesystem (this can be
    checked using the dumpadm command)
 3. Run savecore -L

A crash dump will be created under /var/adm/crash
