Implementation Plan

Step 1: shows an estimation, how much space is required for a dump
sysdumpdev -e

Step 2: creates a new system dump LV
mklv -t sysdump -y <LV name> < volume group> < number of LP’s> <hdisk to reside on>

Step 3: set the newly created dump LV as primary device
sysdumpdev -Pp /dev/<LV Name>
Test Plan

Step 1: check whether sysdump is configured and set as primary
sysdumpdev -l
