ZFS-only system can not save crashdumps (no dumpdev)
|Reported by:||mjollnirpaul||Owned by:|
PC-BSD 9.1 @ amd64
I set (or this was already default) dumpdev to AUTO in rc.conf, and enlarged the swap zvol to match the size of my RAM. I've had several crashes :/ so I'd like to have crashdumps to append to bug reports.
I consider this "major" (or even "critical" or "blocker") 'cause like it is now one can not resolve other issues on a ZFS-only setup.
I remember crashdumps on a ZVOL were possible on OpenSolaris/Solaris? Express and OpenIndiana?, so ZFS should be able to handle that. I didn't find a solution on the net, just some pages stating it's not possible to dump on a ZVOL on FreeBSD.
