I use ssh with login root. For this, you’ll have to add your ssh public key to the authorizedkeys file of the root user of the second host.

Be carefull. Unless I’m behind with the features. Migrating hosts with virt-manager is only supported with shared storage.

To migrate a host including the storage, you’ll have to use virsh.

Onderwerp: [libvirt-users] Add host


I have two host machines both installed with libvirt and virt-manager, which provides me with GUI. I have virtual machines running in one of the host.

Now I want to migrate some of the virtual machines to the other machines. I am trying to migrate using the Virtual Machine Manager. When I select migrate, it pops up a window to choose the new host. The dropdown menu to choose the new host for the virtual machine is empty.

How do you add the new host to the other, so they can know each other? Does it require a clustering software to achieve that?

I need some assistance in that regard
