Description Richard W.M. Jones 2012-12-17 07:22:53 EST
Description of problem:

virt-sparsify takes 'indisk' and 'outdisk' parameters.  This
is a problem for multi-disk virtual machines, especially ones
using LVM, MD, LDM or other volume management where a single
filesystem might be spread over multiple disks.

I have a 3 disk Windows VM using LDM that simply cannot be
sparsified properly, because it's not possible to mount the
LDM partitions that take up the majority of the disk space.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

libguestfs 1.21.0
