Question about live migration and a few others...
Single host setup. Also have a Synology NAS setup with a NFS for testing purposes. Using XO community edition.
I've noticed that when I have a VM running on the xcp-ng host, it cannot be live migrated to the NFS share. With a running VM, when I click the "migrate" arrow button at the top of the XO page for the selected VM, I don't see anything in the host dropdown box. Its blank. However, if I shutdown the VM, I'm able to then select the destination host (I only have one host so its the same host) and then choose the NFS SR to migrate to.
But I seem to have found a way around this problem if I want to live migrate a VM. If I click on the running VM in XO and then click on the "Disks" tab, I can choose "Migrate VDI" and the VM will successfully live migrate to my NFS storage.
So why am I able to live migrate when choosing "Migrate VDI" in the VM "Disks" tab but not the main "Migrate" button at the top? Seems a bit confusing to be honest.
Secondly, how do I edit the description for network interfaces from within XO? In the Hosts -> Network location, I see the PIFs listed. One of them is the default "Pool-wide network associated with eth2". How can I change this to give it a better description?
Just compiled the new XO. You guys are doing a great job adding features! Hope to eventually move to the lower level tiered payed XOA since it a pretty darn good product!
For item #1, I think the confusion is VM migration vs storage migration. VM migration implies moving the VM to a different host/server, while storage migration means moving the VDIs to a different SR. When you have a standalone host, it is my understanding you have to shutdown the VM to migrate it (not move VDI disks).
For item #2, I navigated to Pools-->Network and was able to rename both the network name and description simply by clicking on the item. I was NOT able to do this by navigating to Host-->Network. But, again, my hosts are in a pool. Maybe show a screenshot?
@rkelley You nailed it for item 2. Was driving me crazy!
Ok, that does make sense for item #1 and was kinda what I was thinking. But it does lead one to believe you can't live migrate anything with a single host even if you have shared/remote storage available unless you poke around and experiment with different buttons like i did.
