I tried migrating a VM (Writable) using

nova --debug migrate Writable

But this is the request generated for the above command. Don't understand the -d '{"migrate": null}'. Is the scheduler not able to find any appropriate host ?

-d '{"migrate": null}' is normal. See also the API doc: http://developer.openstack.org/api-re.... To find out what went wrong, search conductor, scheduler and compute logs for the instance's UUID.

also make sure your nova instances directory (/var/lib/nova/instances) is shared between compute nodes to support live migration.http://docs.openstack.org/admin-guide/compute-configuring-migrations.html

The question is about cold migration though. And live migration works well with non-shared disks and --block-migrate.
