When trying to perform live migration of container from PVA MN, the container is rebooted:

  • Log into PVA MN
  • Select any container
  • Click Migrate
  • Check Perform live migration to avoid service interruption.
  • Choose a hardware node
  • Click Migrate
  • Container is rebooted

The same situation occurs if one tries to migrate container via POA with the option 'Shut down VPS before migration' unchecked.


The problem is recognized as a product bug with internal ID PVA-33883.


A permanent fix will be included in one of the future product updates.

If online migration is necessary, it can be done using command-line tools:

# pmigrate c CTID c DestinationNode/NewCTID --online
# vzmigrate --online DestinationNode CTID
