dumpadm and veritas

Veritas File System (VxFS) does not support using dumpadm on files to create dump devices.

Doesn’t work: no work around.
You must have a ufs device for dumpadm to work

For Example:
# cd /test
# mkfile 100m myswap
# dumpadm -d /test/myswap
dumpadm: dumps not supported on /test/myswap
