I set up a virtual machine in virt-manager on one machine, and now I'd
like to port it to another machine.  I copied /var/lib/libvirt to the
other machine, but the VM doesn't show up in the list of VMs in

I must be missing something, but I'm not sure what.  Does anyone know?
Is there something that needs to be set?

The copy of /var/lib/libvirt is on a removable USB drive, and I
symlinked the directory on the target machine to the directory on the
disk.  Do I need to do something more?
