Description Rodrigo Serrano 2013-09-15 08:44:25 UTC

In the Fedora 19 "Virtualization Getting Started Guide", section 2.2 ("What is migration?"), URL http://docs.fedoraproject.org/en-US/Fedora/19/html/Virtualization_Getting_Started_Guide/sec-migration.html

In the paragraph right before the 2.2.1 title, it is stated that "In Fedora 19, shared storage is not necessary for storing guest images to be migrated. With live storage migration [...]".

But in the last paragraph of the page, right before the note, it is stated that "Shared, networked storage must be used for storing guest images to be migrated. Without shared storage, migration is not possible."

These two statements seem contradictory to me. I just started learning about virtualization, so I am unable to propose an alternative. But I do think some clarification is needed.

Working with lnovich to find out the right fix for this.

Comment 2 Glen Rundblom 2015-11-06 03:28:10 UTC
The topic of virtual machine migration was removed from the getting started guide as it was decided that it was outside the scope of a getting started guide. It was removed as of the Fedora23 release of the guide.
