How to migrate in-use cinder boot volumes from one cinder backend to another in Red Hat OpenStack Platform?

The following test does not work:

nova flavor-create m1.small.tiny.disk auto 1024 10 1
openstack volume create --size 10 --image 4da90396-4017-4627-9d04-1f20af9a1409 bfv3
nova boot bfv3 --flavor m1.small.tiny.disk --nic net-id=$NETID --block-device source=volume,id=db589471-b72c-4ab7-bf9a-46c7c407afd6,dest=volume,size=10,shutdown=preserve,bootindex=0 --key-name id_rsa

The volume is currently on nfs1

[stack@undercloud-1 ~]$ cinder show db589471-b72c-4ab7-bf9a-46c7c407afd6 | grep nfs
| os-vol-host-attr:host          | hostgroup@nfs1#nfs1 

Retyping to nfs2:

cinder retype --migration-policy on-demand db589471-b72c-4ab7-bf9a-46c7c407afd6 nfs2

This leads to:

[root@overcloud-controller-0 ~]# tail -f /var/log/cinder/volume.log | egrep 'TRACE|ERROR'

A solution could be to detach the volume and then migrate it. Unfortunately, the volume cannot be simply detached - it is the root volume of a boot from volume device:

[stack@undercloud-1 ~]$ nova stop bfv3
Request to stop server bfv3 has been accepted.
[stack@undercloud-1 ~]$ nova volume-detach bfv3 db589471-b72c-4ab7-bf9a-46c7c407afd6
ERROR (Forbidden): Can't detach root device volume (HTTP 403) (Request-ID: req-7e9eb1f6-2100-49ca-956f-c02a871d82c7)
