Trying with the new build rhevm- I do not get NullPointerException any more, but still the detail of the failure is incorrect, I get:

<detail>[User is not authorized to perform this action.]</detail>
<reason>Operation Failed</reason>

This is although I'm running the cmd as admin with superUser permissions on the vm, just the same as other vms with which the sparsify action works or fails with specific msg, e.g.

[Cannot sparsify Virtual Disk. Sparsifying is not supported for preallocated disk bla_Disk1.]

Please check it out.

Verifying the bug as it handles the NullPointerException issue, but opening a new one regarding the new issue: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1428404
