I'm trying to live migrate instances between 2 Hyper-v hosts. I'm using Kerberos and have set the necessary delegations. The instance is running normally. In the Windows Hyper-V VMMS Event Log I see

EventId: 19050 
'instance-00006ac3' failed to perform the operation. The virtual machine is not in a valid state to perform the operation. (Virtual machine ID A06D5047-6D5E-4D18-B1F8-68E3D746542B)

In the nova logfile it says

'HyperVException: WMI job failed with status 10. Error details: <INSTANCE CLASSNAME="Msvm_Error"><PROPERTY NAME="CIMStatusCode" TYPE="uint32"><VALUE>1</VALUE></PROPERTY><PROPERTY NAME="CIMStatusCodeDescription" TYPE="string"></PROPERTY><PROPERTY NAME="ErrorSource" TYPE="string"></PROPERTY><PROPERTY NAME="ErrorSourceFormat" TYPE="uint16"><VALUE>0</VALUE></PROPERTY><PROPERTY NAME="ErrorType" TYPE="uint16"><VALUE>4</VALUE></PROPERTY><PROPERTY NAME="Message" TYPE="string"><VALUE>Virtual machine migration operation for \'instance-00006b37\' failed at migration destination \'ostkcomp23\'.

I'm on Server 2016, Liberty and using the ovs-agent. Any ideas what is happening here? Edit: Funny. It works as long as the target host is "empty" (no other instance is running on the target host).

Hello! Could you please try to live migrate a VM manually to see if it works? Are you running the nova-compute service with a user that has admin rights in the domain? Thanks, Alin.

Do you have any tutorials to help me?

That's not an answer to my question. Please don't hijack other people's questions.
