"Migration failed" error during live migration
Last modified: 2010-05-26 16:42:30 EDT
Description of problem:
I'm testing Live Migration feature of libvirt, and when I run the migration command, "migration failed" error occurs.(The same when I remove "--live")
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Stop firewall and selinux on both source and dest machine.
2.Start the guest machine on source.
3.Run "virsh migrate --live fedora qemu+ssh://10.66.65.51/system"
error: operation failed: migration to 'tcp:live.localdomain:49167' failed: migration failed
"libvirt -v" on source machine:
14:44:23.080: error : qemuMonitorTextMigrate:1126 : operation failed: migration to 'tcp:live.localdomain:49167' failed: migration failed
libvir: QEMU error : operation failed: migration to 'tcp:live.localdomain:49167' failed: migration failed
"libvirt -v" on dest machine:
libvir: error : Unknown failure
I changed /etc/hosts on dest machine like this, because of an "internal error canonical hostname pointed to localhost, but this is not allowed" error:
[root@localhost ~]# cat /etc/hosts
10.66.65.51 live.localdomain live
::1 localhost.localdomain localhost6
If you alter /etc/hosts and want migration to work, the hostname you add needs to resolve from other machines, which live.localdomain probably does not.
Closing as a dup of, which is tracking migration error reporting issues.
