Migrating a VM in 'POWEROFF' state

Hi everyone,

I’m trying to simulate a node replacement scenario within OpenNebula. As part of my simulation I require a VM to be migrated to another node. The problem I’m facing is when a VM is in ‘POWEROFF’ state, are these not able to migrated in this state?

Sorry if this has been answered already.

Kind Regards,
Joshua Blake

The migrate action is available for VMs in poweroff.
Is it not working for you? Do you get any error messages?

Hi Carlos,

Thank you for responding. Here is what I get when I try to migrate a VM.

[admin@node0 ~]$ onevm list

What OpenNebula version are you using?

How do I check that? Sorry.

oned -v, or log files

[admin@node0 ~]$ oned -v
