Openstack Live Migration of instances with iSCSI based boot volumes will not work

Solution Unverified - Updated -


  • Creating a boot volume from an image and starting the instance using this boot volume works. Live Migration also succeeds, but the access to the boot volume is lost after migration
  • I am not able to successfully live migrate an instance that uses an iSCSI boot disk.
  • The instance loses access to its boot volume on iSCSI after live migration finishes.
