Logical Domains 1.3 Release Notes

Migration Does Not Fail If a vdsdev on the Target Has a Different Backend

Bug ID 6772120: If the virtual disk on the target machine does not point to the same disk backend that is used on the source machine, the migrated domain cannot access the virtual disk using that disk backend. A hang can result when accessing the virtual disk on the domain.
