download PDF
The virsh vol-pool vol command returns the pool name or UUID for a given storage volume. By default, the storage pool name is returned. If the --uuid option is used, the pool UUID is returned instead. The command requires the key or path of the storage volume for which to return the requested information.

Example 20.96. How to display the storage volume's name or UUID

The following examples retrieves the name for the storage volume that is found in the path /var/lib/libvirt/images/vol-new:
# virsh vol-pool /var/lib/libvirt/images/vol-new

The vol-path --pool pool-or-uuid vol-name-or-key command returns the path for a given volume. The command requires --pool pool-or-uuid, which is the name or UUID of the storage pool the volume is in. It also requires vol-name-or-key which is the name or key of the volume for which the path has been requested.
The vol-name vol-key-or-path command returns the name for a given volume, where vol-key-or-path is the key or path of the volume to return the name for.
The vol-key --pool pool-or-uuid vol-name-or-path command returns the volume key for a given volume where --pool pool-or-uuid is the name or UUID of the storage pool the volume is in and vol-name-or-path is the name or path of the volume to return the volume key for.
