How do you generate a core dump for IBM to look at?

There is a program in the OS2 directory or a subdirectory of it called DDUMP.EXE. This program will create a dump disk for you to use when you get a trap like this one.
Once the server crashes with the trap insert the dump disk and hit the following keys:
Control - Alt - NUM LOCK --  NUM LOCK  (Yes, hit NumLock key twice.)

Just a word of caution. 48 MB of ram created 25 Disks. The dump Disk is needed to start the memory dump.
