The server must not be allowed to recover from an abend to get a useful coredump.
Forcing a coredump before an abend
or after a soft abend proves a useful troubleshooting technique for
hangs or high utilization issues.
To force a coredump press the following key sequence to get into the Internal Debugger:
L-SHIFT, R-SHIFT, ALT, ESQ
This will take you to a # prompt. At the colon prompt type .c to force a coredump and then follow the prompts. Once the coredump is complete you can opt to return to the server prompt without rebooting by typing the letter g. This i s not recommended but may be necessary under rare troubleshooting scenarios.
