Comment 1 Michal Skrivanek 2014-01-16 08:32:10 UTC
importnat to note is the VM is paused due to EIO, which should indeed be blocked.
However that NPE is not niceā€¦
Also the current code check for paused state (introduced in 9e7a6163034152ecf9a846c151c7dc95cfcb0e62 by rgolan) is not correct as the user-paused VMs should be able to migrate, only when the reason is EIO we should block

Comment 3 Artyom 2014-03-18 17:04:48 UTC
Verified on is35, checked that nullPointerException not appear under engine.log

Comment 12 Artyom 2014-05-12 16:33:20 UTC
Checked on av9
Scenarion: Run Once vm with "Start in pause mode" enabled, wait until vm state is paused, and migrate it, first migration works fine, but if you migrate it second time it failed, because that:
detail none, so from you patch it will no migrate again, so you or need to save reason why vm paused or change if statement and add possibility to migrate paused vm when <detail>none</detail>

Comment 13 Michal Skrivanek 2014-05-15 08:20:22 UTC
well the code change is still not entirely correct. The only reason when we should not migrate is EIO, all other reasons including other errors, like ENOSPACE are ok

Though we shouldn't "lose" the reason after migration anyway

Comment 17 Artyom 2014-07-14 06:11:16 UTC
Verified on rhevm-3.5.0-0.4.master.el6_5.noarch
Migrate paused vm three times from host to host
