Images Default Storage

Using the most current version of LXD on Ubuntu Focal, I’d like to change the location images are stored. Because if I use lxc image import I run out of space, the root drive has limited capacity, by default.

How do I change the default image storage location, or at least specify a different location for a one-time import? All storage pools are dir based.

You can create a storage volume on one of your pools with lxc storage volume create and then assign that volume to hold the image files with lxc config set storage.images_volume POOLNAME/VOLUMENAME
