13.6.6.  Migrate Action

The migrate action migrates a virtual machine to another physical host. The destination host element is an optional element as Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization Manager automatically selects a default host for migration. If an API user requires a specific host, the user can specify the host with either an id or name parameter.
