As has been pointed out, SELinux may prevent that from working with a simple symlink. You have two options that will work: 1: Create a symlink and set the context of the link destination to the same context used for /var/lib/libvirt/images. Use semanage to make the changes permanent, or else a restorecon might break the system: http://docs.fedoraproject.org/en-US/Fedora/13/html/Security-Enhanced_Linux/sect-Security-Enhanced_Linux-SELinux_Contexts_Labeling_Files-Persistent_Changes_semanage_fcontext.html 2: Use a "bind" mount instead of a symlink. Enter a line in /etc/fstab like this one: /bigger/fs /var/lib/libvirt/images none bind 0 0 Then, mount /var/lib/libvirt/images and "restorecon -r -v /var/lib/libvirt/images"
