Description Fam Zheng 2015-07-13 02:54:39 UTC
When source image is sparse, we should use sparse write on destination as well.


# qemu-img create source.img 1G
# qemu-io source.img -c 'write -z 0 1G'
# /usr/libexec/qemu-kvm -drive file=source.img,if=none,id=source
(QMP) drive-mirror device=source target=target.img sync=full
# qemu-img map target.img

Actual result:

# qemu-img map /var/tmp/b
Offset          Length          Mapped to       File
0               0x40000000      0               /var/tmp/b

Expected result:

# qemu-img map /var/tmp/b
Offset          Length          Mapped to       File

(no mapping)

WARNING: Image format was not specified for 'source.img' and probing guessed raw.
         Automatically detecting the format is dangerous for raw images, write operations on block 0 will be restricted.
         Specify the 'raw' format explicitly to remove the restrictions.

Comment 3 Paolo Bonzini 2015-07-17 11:27:10 UTC
If testing this with NFS (bug 1079385) note that NFS 4.2 negotation must be enabled explicitly.

This test case should be added to the thin-provisioning test plan.  Another important test case is to run fstrim during drive-mirror.

Comment 4 Miroslav Rezanina 2015-07-24 11:09:00 UTC
Fix included in qemu-kvm-rhev-2.3.0-13.el7

Comment 6 Shaolong Hu 2015-07-29 08:22:07 UTC
Verified on qemu-kvm-rhev-2.3.0-13.el7.x86_64:

with steps in comment 2, after last step:

[root@hp-dl385g7-02 ~]# qemu-img map target.img
Offset          Length          Mapped to       File
