I am using UCS 4 and have a couple of virtual machines setup in the default uvmm path (/var/lib/libvirt/images). I would like to move the location of the VM images off the root partition to a larger data volume. I have copied the VM image files to the new path and modified the “/uvmm/pool/default/path” varaible in the UCR, but UVMM continues always to try to find images in the default path. I thought at 1st I would just need to restart the virtualisation services, but even after a reboot, UVMM continues to only accept image names from the default path, and not to accept valid image paths in the new location as set by the above UCR variable (/data/vmstore in my case).
I seem to remember being able to achieve this in UCS 3.2. Has something changed such that this cannot be done in UCS 4? Or should I create a link at the default path to point to my new preferred location ? Any feedback would be much appreciated.
