New ISO image

In order to use an ISO file when you create a new machine, you must first place it inside the KVM directory:


Then you have to tell the storage engine that you changed a file manually.

sudo virsh pool-list
 Name                 State      Autostart
 default              active     yes
 pool2                active     yes
sudo virsh pool-refresh default
sudo virsh pool-refresh pool2

Reload the new machine form so the file you just uploaded shows up in the ISO list.

After that, Ravada is able to use he ISO when selecting it while creating a machine. Also, ISOs that were downloaded from Ravada can also be found in this directory.

If you want to include a KVM templated instead, use this guide .

If you need the xml or the volume (for when you wanna add a new template), you can extract them via virsh using the following commands:

sudo virsh pool-list #in order to see the list of available pools
sudo virsh vol-list default #in order to see the list of volumes available
sudo virsh vol-dumpxml --pool default name_of_the_existing_machine.qcow2 #obtain the dump of a selected volume
sudo virsh dumpxml name_of_the_existing_machine #obtain the xml of a existing selected machine
