Why does Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization Manager shows the status of a virtual machine as "migrating" and attempts to cancel fail?

Solution Verified - Updated -


  • Migrating a virtual machine seemed to be taking longer than normal.

  • Attempts to cancel the migration failed with the following events message:

"Failed to cancel migration of vm:"
  • RHEV-M shows the status of the VM as "migrating".
