GEt alsl virsh configs

Cutton Eye asked:

I’ve several qemu vm’s managed with virsh.
I’ve already created a backup of the images. Now I want to create a backup of the config files. How can I do that?

The only solution I’ve figured out so fare is: virsh dumpxml vmname > bachuk.xmlsee. But this stores only one machine.

Is there a simple way to get just all of the configs with simple commands?

My answer:


The entire libvirt configuration is stored in various files in the /etc/libvirt directory, which you can back up via any means you wish.
