How it works...

Libvirt provides a way to edit the snapshot definition for a virtual machine. We can change various XML attributes, such as the snapshot name, description, or the location of the backing image file. In step 1, we list all available snapshots for the specified KVM instance, then proceed to update the name and description of the disk image. Finally, in step 3, we can see the changed name for the external snapshot.
