i think i know wich thread you mean, and they advised you to upgrade
qemu-server 4.0-59
pve-qemu-kvm 2.5-7

however, i'm already running
qemu-server: 4.0-72
pve-qemu-kvm: 2.5-14

here is the log from the latest try:
task started by HA resource agent
May 12 12:10:26 starting migration of VM 105 to node 'pve1'
May 12 12:10:26 copying disk images
May 12 12:10:26 starting VM 105 on remote node 'pve1'
May 12 12:10:28 starting ssh migration tunnel
May 12 12:10:29 starting online/live migration on localhost:60000
May 12 12:10:29 migrate_set_speed: 8589934592
May 12 12:10:29 migrate_set_downtime: 0.1
May 12 12:10:31 ERROR: online migrate failure - aborting
May 12 12:10:31 aborting phase 2 - cleanup resources
May 12 12:10:31 migrate_cancel
May 12 12:10:33 ERROR: migration finished with problems (duration
TASK ERROR: migration problems

i also saw the task starting the vm on the new node and starting the
migration tunnel, which succeeded.

as for storage:
we are using ceph storage for the VMs

just for the record:
i reran some test just now:
* offline migration works (i have a test vm that i could use for
* even though i got an error yesterday, it worked just now for a
  freshly booted VM

i still would like to find a way that does not involve shutting down
all VMs to get migration working again...the next possible time for
that would be at some point end of next week most likly...

yes i know, i just saw it...however i really don't think non-running
kernels are the problem here...

hm...slightly newer, however i think that's becaus you are running

thanks for all the pointers sofar...
