If you’ve never done this before, we suggest:
Be aware that this may take up quite a bit of disk space.
Run the DAT (Dump Analysis Tool) program to load the
Tell DAT to load the dump into a file named something
like “HANG1”. (There is a five character limit to the dump
name. The first character has to be a letter, and may be
followed by any combination of letters and digits.)
Enter the getdump command: (The following example
creates a dump file called HANG1)
DAT will request the tape (you may need to =REPLY to
the tape request) and will allocate disk space to hold the
It then reads the tape onto disk, and displays a progress bar during loading.
Load the DAT macros: (HANG1 is the name from the
macstart “HANG1”, “1”
Note: if DAT says it found errors while loading the dump,
and asks if it should continue, enter YES.
Pre-process the dump, saving time for support:
STORE the dump to tape
:STORE HANG1@ ;; show; progress
(You can STORE the dump onto the original tape, if you
wish ... the original dump tape is no longer needed, because
the STORE tape version is more useful.)
Send the STORE tape with the dump to us at Resource
3000, or your software support team.
