After Teradata restarts following a crashdump, you can save the dump to another Teradata system if it is running the same version of the operating system and Teradata Database. To do this:

  1. Copy the contents of the raw dump directory to the other system.
  2. Save all dumps CSP finds by using this command:
    csp -mode save -force
  3. Verify that the crashdumps were properly saved to DBC.Crashdumps by using the this command:
    # csp -mode list -source table
    csp: Searching for dumps in Teradata database Crashdumps on the local system
    csp: 1 dump found, 1 dump to process
    csp: Sel  DumpName                 Nodes Event Instigator      Status
    csp: ---  ------------------------ ----- ----- --------------- ------
