Assuming [IPMI|http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Intelligent_Platform_Management_Interface] has been configured, it's possible to get Illumos systems to generate a sytem crash dump by sending the host a  NMI ([non-maskable interrupt)|http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Non-maskable_interrupt]  via IPMI. To send an NMI first obtain ipmitool from its [website|http://ipmitool.sourceforge.net/].  Then issue the following command:

{color:#000000}ipmitool{color} {color:#000000}*\-I{*}{color}{color:#000000}&nbsp;{color}{color:#000000}{_}lan{_}{color}{color:#000000}&nbsp;{color}{color:#000000}*\-H{*}{color}{color:#000000}&nbsp;<{color}{color:#000000}{_}hostname{_}{color}{color:#000000}> chassis power diag{color}
{code:language=bash}$ ipmitool -I lan -H <hostname> chassis power drag{code}

{color:#000000}Once receiving the NMI, the crash dump will be written to {{/var/crash}} and the system will reboot. Please contact Joyent support (if you are a customer) or engineering via the Freenode IRC channel #smartos or the smartos-discuss mailing list, as they'll likely be interested in taking a look at the dump.{color}
