Resizing instances from dashboard is failing with "Migration error: Failed to transfer vhd to new host" error.

Error Logs:

Running single host: XenServer 6.2 + DevStack (XenAPI)

nova.conf has:

allow_resize_to_same_host = True

As a result, instances are getting renamed with "-orig" appended to their names and are not useable in openstack anymore.

I managed to solve this by enabling ssh public key based authentication from root@[xenserver_ip] to root@[xenserver_ip] (because I have single xenserver host).

Found the hint in debug logs as rsync command was failing with permission denied error.

Had same problem with shared NFS share, this solved problem.
