7.107 Kdump Core Collector Using Sparse Copy Fails

When kdump on an Oracle VM Server is configured to use sparse files for vmcore dump files to reduce the dump file size, kdump fails with an error similar to:

Scanning and configuring dmraid supported devices 
cp: unrecognized option `--sparse=always' 

Workaround: Add the following to the kdump.conf on the Oracle VM Server:

extra_bins /bin/cp
core_collector /bin/cp --sparse=always
