So, I’d like to tweak the XML config being used for a HVM. I’m well aware that any changes I make to it risk reducing my overall security and/or bricking my HVM entirely; this is all in the name of experimentation and personal development.
Here’s what I’ve tried:
- I’ve tried
virsh editfrom dom0; and while this works, the edits are lost after I next restart the HVM.
- I’ve also tried creating a file in
/etc/qubes/templates/libvirt/xen/by-name/my-domain.xmland then restarting the Qube to regenerate the config.
- I’ve even tried updating
/usr/share/qubes/templates/libvirt/xen.xmldirectly and restarting the Qube. But not even this worked.
I based these attempts off of reading this documentation: https://dev.qubes-os.org/projects/core-admin/en/latest/libvirt.html
None of these have worked - which makes me suspect I’m missing something? (Like, is libvirt or some other component somehow caching these configs?)
