[libvirt-users] libvirt domain configuration xml

I am trying to change a domain configuration from a python script. More specific, I want to edit the VNC settings. You can't do this using the libvirt API so you have to edit the domain configuration:

Fo exmple, to disable VNC for a domain 'test1':

vmXml = vm.XMLDesc(0)
root = ET.fromstring(vmXml)
devices = root.find('./devices')
graphics = devices.find('graphics')
xml = ET.tostring(root)
with open('path_to/test1.xml', 'w') as f:

not the problem is with the test1.xml. Even though the domain configuration seems to be stored there, the file seems to be regenerated/overwritten so any changes I make will not take effect.

So the question really is: where is the domain configuration stored? Am I editing the write file, or am I missing something?
