NAME
/etc/libguestfs-tools.conf - configuration file for guestfish, guestmount, virt-rescue SYNOPSIS
/etc/libguestfs-tools.conf $HOME/.libguestfs-tools.rc DESCRIPTION
"/etc/libguestfs-tools.conf" or "$HOME/.libguestfs-tools.rc" changes the defaults for the following programs only: o guestfish(1) o guestmount(1) o virt-rescue(1) There is currently only one setting which is controlled by this file. Adding (or uncommenting): read_only = true; changes these programs so they act as if the --ro flag was given on the command line. You can use this to make the programs safe against accidental modification of a live guest (users would have to explicitly add the --rw flag to modify guests). This is not the default because it is not backwards compatible. See also "OPENING DISKS FOR READ AND WRITE" in guestfish(1). Note that the semicolon is required. "/etc/libguestfs-tools.conf" is the global configuration file for all of the above programs. Local users can override the global configuration by copying this file into ".libguestfs-tools.rc" in their home directory and modifying it accordingly. This file is parsed by the libconfig library.

NAME
virt-copy-out - Copy files and directories out of a virtual machine disk image. SYNOPSIS
virt-copy-out -a disk.img /file|dir [/file|dir ...] localdir virt-copy-out -d domain /file|dir [/file|dir ...] localdir DESCRIPTION
"virt-copy-out" copies files and directories out of a virtual machine disk image or named libvirt domain. You can give one of more filenames and directories on the command line. Directories are copied out recursively. EXAMPLES
Download the home directories from a virtual machine: mkdir homes virt-copy-out -d MyGuest /home homes JUST A SHELL SCRIPT WRAPPER AROUND GUESTFISH
This command is just a simple shell script wrapper around the guestfish(1) "copy-out" command. For anything more complex than a trivial copy, you are probably better off using guestfish directly. OPTIONS
Since the shell script just passes options straight to guestfish, read guestfish(1) to see the full list of options. SEE ALSO
