12.3.4. Deleting a Storage Pool Using virsh

The following demonstrates how to delete a storage pool using virsh:
  1. To avoid any issues with other guest virtual machines using the same pool, it is best to stop the storage pool and release any resources in use by it.
    # virsh pool-destroy guest_images_disk
  2. Optionally, if you want to remove the directory where the storage pool resides use the following command:
    # virsh pool-delete guest_images_disk
  3. Remove the storage pool's definition
    # virsh pool-undefine guest_images_disk
