Re: Crash in 2.2.2
:I have a machine that is a pf firewall, dns, ntp, and dhcp server
:(nothing else running), which was running 2.0. Last week, I did a
:fresh install of 2.2.2 on it. Yesterday, it crashed to the debugger
:prompt with an uptime of approximately 4 days. Unfortunately, the
:person who rebooted it didn't note the error message on the screen. I
:never had a crash under 2.0. I realize this report is pretty useless.
: If the machine does this again, what should I do at the debug prompt
:to collect more info?
The best thing to do is to is to set the machine up to generate
a kernel dump and automatically reboot.
In /etc/rc.conf, set the dump device to point to your swap partition
(make sure it is the swap partition). e.g.:
The swap partition must be at least as large as main memory.
