Hi all, I am trying to figure out if you can store the definition of a directory storage pool in a custom location. This is how I create the storage pool: xmlDesc = """ <pool type='dir'> <name>guest_images_storage_pool</name> <uuid>8c79f996-cb2a-d24d-9822-ac7547ab2d01</uuid> <capacity unit='bytes'>4306780815</capacity> <allocation unit='bytes'>237457858</allocation> <available unit='bytes'>4069322956</available> <source> </source> <target> <path>/disk1/guest_images</path> <permissions> <mode>0755</mode> <owner>-1</owner> <group>-1</group> </permissions> </target> </pool>""" pool = conn.storagePoolDefineXML(xmlDesc, 0) This creates guest_images_storage_pool.xml in /etc/libvirt/storage. I assume this is the default path libvirt looks for any storage pools on the system The problem is that /etc is mapped to a ramdisk on my system. So after restart anything in there would be wiped.
Well, how do you expect applications to save configurations then? You can compile libvirt with --sysconfdir=/something_else_than/etc, but I would expect problems with more than libvirt if you have /etc on ramdisk...
The path /disk1 maps to an actual hdd partition so ideally libvirt sould look for it's storage pools in there. I can't seem to make that happen. I tried adding a source path: <source> <dir path="/disk1/storage_pool"/> </source> But that has no effect. Any ideas?
