So after creating my fmdump script, I found out that it did not assist in finding a fan problem on one of our servers. Usually I do a walkthrough of our data center to look for the amber health warnings on the servers and then try to diagnose the problem from there. This time though, my coworker saw a kern error from the syslog which lead to the discovery of the hardware fault.
I was really hoping that fmdump would be something that could find these errors but I was proven wrong. Now I have a tail -f /var/adm/messages | grep kern.error going on to check for these types of events now.
