    @Zep, I dont see where its mention that systemdump wont work. I have done it many a times to create dump files for my system and as far as my memory is concerned I am sure that SUN only gave me this recommendation few years back for x-86 arch. The steps were: edit grub.conf, edit system file, reboot, start /SP/console, run IPMI tool and you will get kmdb prompt, type systemdump there are you will get the out you want. I suggest you to try it again and let me know the errors you will get.

    it’s not theystem dump itself; it’s the #.
    doesn’t work (at least for me):
    #< systemdump
    does work (at least for me)
    $< systemdump
