NAME
       virt-tar-in - Unpack a tarball into a virtual machine disk image.

SYNOPSIS
	virt-tar-in -a disk.img data.tar /destination

	virt-tar-in -d domain data.tar /destination

	zcat data.tar.gz | virt-tar-in -d domain - /destination

WARNING
       Using "virt-tar-in" on live virtual machines can be dangerous, potentially causing disk
       corruption.  The virtual machine must be shut down before you use this command.

DESCRIPTION
       "virt-tar-in" unpacks an uncompressed tarball into a virtual machine disk image or named
       libvirt domain.

       The first parameter is the tar file.  Use "-" to read the tar file from standard input.
       The second parameter is the absolute target directory to unpack into.

EXAMPLES
       Upload a home directory to a guest:

	virt-tar-in -d MyGuest homes.tar /home

JUST A SHELL SCRIPT WRAPPER AROUND GUESTFISH
       This command is just a simple shell script wrapper around the guestfish(1) "tar-in"
       command.  For anything more complex than a trivial copy, you are probably better off using
       guestfish directly.

OPTIONS
       Since the shell script just passes options straight to guestfish, read guestfish(1) to see
       the full list of options.
