KVM live migration fails out with error: Unsafe migration

Solution Verified - Updated -


Trying to live migrate a guest causes the following error:

# virsh migrate  --live guest01 qemu+ssh://host02/system
error: Unsafe migration: Migration may lead to data corruption if disks use cache != none

Using the '--unsafe' option for virsh works well for manual migration but 'clusvcadm -M' keeps failing.
