Store virtual machine to library – Error

I attempted to store a Hyper-V image I was working with to the library for others to later use when I encountered the following error message.

Cannot store virtual machine <instance name> in cloud <cloud name> because this cloud does not have a stored VM path configured. (StatusCode: 22805–CannotStoreVmInCloudLibraryServerNotAvailable)

I then discovered that I needed to a path for the stored VMs. You can do this by:
1. Open the VMM Console as an administrator
2. Select the Cloud and open the Properties for the cloud
3. Go to the Library tab of the Properties page
4. Ensure there is a value for “Stored VM path”  listed at the top of the page

Retuning back and repeating my previous steps were not successful.
