Hey , I'm trying to migrate instance from one host to another and i get the following error Failed to open file '/var/lib/libvirt/images/backup-clone2.img': No such file or directory

sudo virsh migrate --verbose --p2p --tunnelled --undefinesource --unsafe --copy-storage-inc --live --listen-address --domain 4 qemu+ssh://nova@

I think i don 't need any NFS here since i have enabled copy storage inc flag

and I get the following error

Failed to open file '/var/lib/libvirt/images/backup-clone2.img': No such file or directory

I'm not using openstack , I'm just using libvirt and virsh to migrate using kbm and qemu.

I found a similar issue here (link) But there is no solution to that thread .

Does that file exist?
