Hi John,

thanks for letting us know you succeeded - and just as a reminder: Please let kpartx remove those devices before restarting the DomU. It won't cause any immediate harm not to do so , but you'll clobber your /dev/mapper directory and would have changing device names on every consecutive kpartx ("create devices") call - nothing nice when you're scripting things. Not to forget that you *might* run some tool that scans for "disk partitions" that could see these files and act on them, which isn't wanted either.
