[OpenIndiana-discuss] "bad mutex" crash?

I'm thinking of migrating to a bigger root pool vmdk.  In normal
circumstances, the dump zvol will be empty, so using veeam backup should be
able to squeeze the dump down to a smaller file.  Thanks!

I think you can configure dumpadm to use another pool for dumps.
You can certainly use another pool for swap area, and free up space on rpool
- if rpool/dump must indeed be on rpool.

Quite likely, you can also expand (live or offline) your VM's harddisk and
then autoexpand your rpool, though that would likely require merging and
destruction of older VM (hypervizor's) snapshots.
