Attempting a live migration of an instance with multiple attached volumes may fail pre-migration checks due to an RPC timeout.
- Increase the default RPC timeout of 60 seconds using an override in /opt/pf9/etc/nova/conf.d/nova_override.conf, as shown here.
rpc_response_timeout = 120
- Restart the pf9-hostagent service:
# systemctl restart pf9-hostagent
- Retry the migration operation and further increase the RPC timeout if necessary.
