2. migrate starts

Actual results:
Unknown savevm section type 5
qemu-kvm: load of migration failed: Invalid argument

Expected results:
migration finished success

Additional info:
same env & cli works on qemu-kvm-rhev-2.1.2-23.el7_1.1.x86_64

Comment 2 Dr. David Alan Gilbert 2015-03-03 15:52:42 UTC
This is probably the stuff Paolo fixed after 2.2.0 - it's known to fix Windows 2003 migration, so I'd expect it to be the same stuff.
It's fixed in head, and in what should be 2.2.1 as well.

Comment 3 saayeesundarraj.ganesan 2015-05-22 05:06:20 UTC
Hi David,

Please let me know in which link we can download this "qemu-kvm-rhev" latest RPMs, as the link "http://people.redhat.com/gcase/.a76c469f03d87b/ " is not working.

Hi mrezanin,

Could you please add this bz to qemu-kvm-rhev erratum?

Best Regards,

Comment 9 juzhang 2015-09-07 02:50:42 UTC
According to comment6, set this issue as verified.

Comment 10 Miroslav Rezanina 2015-09-07 04:56:14 UTC
Hi Junyi,
yes, it has to get proper flags to be able to add to erratum. I'll negotiate the flags.

Comment 13 Marina Kalinin 2016-05-24 20:22:04 UTC
Hi Juan,

I have a case where I get a similar error in qemu log:

2016-05-24T12:38:40.223467Z qemu-kvm: Unknown combination of migration flags: 0
2016-05-24T12:38:40.224147Z qemu-kvm: error while loading state section id 2(ram)
2016-05-24T12:38:40.224499Z qemu-kvm: load of migration failed: Invalid argument

Once I get libvirt logs, I will open a new bug for this, unless it looks same to you.

dest host:

source host:
qemu-kvm-rhev-2.3.0 - 31.el7_2.13.x86_64

Comment 14 Dr. David Alan Gilbert 2016-05-31 12:04:23 UTC
Marina: Please open that as a new bz and state the number; it's not the same as this one (different state section and you've got the unknown combination of flags).
I'd bet in your case it's the source dieing first.
