Hello,

I want to migrate an instance to another host. When I try it from console with nova live-migrate instance-id, it works without an issue. When I try migration by using Openstack Dashboard, it fails, and puts instance to "Error" state. I recover the instance with "nova reset-state --active instance-id" command.

The following log generated when I try to migrate by using Openstack Dashboard:

Note that the dashboard uses the "nova migrate" command (not live-migration), which involves a reboot and I believe needs to be set up differently. Does "nova migrate" works from the command-line client?

Ok, that was the difference! :) I guess instance needs to be shutdown to migrate. I guess live-migration just works in the console.
