| Hello. If you're using raid1,
Yes, Greg Oster indicated that as well. Thanks.
It is OK now (I think), I found a bunch of empty space at the end of the
most recently added (replaced) drive - when replacing drives in raid setups
you're almost always going to have left over space at the end, as it
is almost impossible to buy a drive today as small as the biggest you
could buy last year...
Anyway, I now have dumps configured on a wdNx type partition, and we'll
see what happens next time I get a crash (but that may be days, weeks,
or even months, away).

What arg are you giving to -N ??
This doesn't make a lot of sense to me, -N just sets the kernel, if
your kernel is /netbsd I can't say that saying "-N /netbsd" should
change a thing. Is that what you're doing? On the other hand, if
your kernel is not /netbsd then of course -N is going to be be needed,
though you should be able to set it in savecore_flags in rc.conf and
have it happen during the boot time run or rc.d/savecore
