Using ldmtool

I'm trying to access a dynamic disk using ldmtool from this guide: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Dynamic_Disks
It detects the partitions:

ldm> scan /dev/sdc
[
  "f1b87e11-d16f-11e4-b62a-bc5ff4abc56e"
]
ldm> show diskgroup f1b87e11-d16f-11e4-b62a-bc5ff4abc56e
{
  "name" : "WIN-JLETFH6M5QG-Dg0",
  "guid" : "f1b87e11-d16f-11e4-b62a-bc5ff4abc56e",
  "volumes" : [
    "Volume2",
    "Volume1",
    "Volume3"
  ],
  "disks" : [
    "Disk1"
  ]
}
ldm> show volume f1b87e11-d16f-11e4-b62a-bc5ff4abc56e Volume1
{
  "name" : "Volume1",
  "type" : "spanned",
  "size" : 335544320,
  "chunk-size" : 0,
  "hint" : "D:",
  "partitions" : [
    "Disk1-01",
    "Disk1-04"
  ]
}
ldm> show volume f1b87e11-d16f-11e4-b62a-bc5ff4abc56e Volume2
{
  "name" : "Volume2",
  "type" : "spanned",
  "size" : 1830838272,
  "chunk-size" : 0,
  "hint" : "E:",
  "partitions" : [
    "Disk1-02",
    "Disk1-05"
  ]
}
ldm> show volume f1b87e11-d16f-11e4-b62a-bc5ff4abc56e Volume3
{
  "name" : "Volume3",
  "type" : "simple",
  "size" : 1740636412,
  "chunk-size" : 0,
  "hint" : "G:",
  "partitions" : [
    "Disk1-03"
  ]
}

but when I try to map them:

ldm> create all
Unable to create volume Volume2 in disk group f1b87e11-d16f-11e4-b62a-bc5ff4abc56e: ldm_vol_WIN-JLETFH6M5QG-Dg0_Volume2: Stacking NODE_DEL [verify_udev]
Unable to create volume Volume1 in disk group f1b87e11-d16f-11e4-b62a-bc5ff4abc56e: ldm_vol_WIN-JLETFH6M5QG-Dg0_Volume1: Stacking NODE_DEL [verify_udev]
Unable to create volume Volume3 in disk group f1b87e11-d16f-11e4-b62a-bc5ff4abc56e: ldm_vol_WIN-JLETFH6M5QG-Dg0_Volume3: Stacking NODE_DEL [verify_udev]

Any help? I eventually want to mount one or two of them at startup from the fstab file but first I need to access them.
