Adding an alternative storage pool

If the default storage location of /var/lib/libvirt/images does not have enough space for the volumes that you wish to assign to virtual machines, you can add a second storage pool. These steps may prove helpful:

virsh pool-dumpxml default > pool.xml
edit pool.xml # with new name and path
virsh pool-create pool.xml
virsh pool-refresh name

One side note: You will need to delete the UUID field in the xml file if you intend to keep the default pool - no two pools defined can have the same UUID - but keep the brackets like so: '<uuid></uuid>'
