Description of problem:
The error message is not clear when client certificate is missing for tls migration

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Prepare two hosts for migration
2.On target host, enable the client certification verification for migration:
   migrate_tls_x509_verify = 1

3.On target host, create ca and server certification in directory /etc/pki/qemu:
# ls /etc/pki/qemu/
ca-cert.pem  ca-key.pem server-cert.pem  server-key.pem

4. On source host, create ca certification in directory /etc/pki/qemu:
# ls /etc/pki/qemu/

5. Do tls migration:
# virsh migrate foo qemu+ssh:// --live --verbose --tls
error: operation failed: migration job: unexpectedly failed

Actual results:
As step5, migration fails but the error message is not clear

Expected results:
Virsh output clear error message when migration fails.

There isn't anything that libvirt can really do here. As far as QEMU is concerned if the client doesn't present a certificate during handshake, the server will just terminate the connection. This is indistinguishable from any other TLS failure during handshake.

Per comment 2 closing as CANTFIX.
