Is live migration possible without a shared mount when the source of the VM is a cinder volume?

Environmental details:

Openstack vers/environment: Devstack in multi mode using the Netapp C-Mode NFS driver for Cinder but with no shared mounts for the /opt/stack/data/nova/instances directory.

Hypervisor: KVM/QEMU VM: booted from a cinder 2GB disk created from the Cirros image and set bootable Command: nova live-migration 26e1cea3-644c-4934-a19e-67e98b6ddf90 ubuntu2 Error in n-cpu.log: InvalidSharedStorage: ubuntu is not on shared storage: Live migration can not be used without shared storage

Since cinder by definition is on shared storage shouldn't this command work using the netapp nfs storage which is already available to both nodes?
