Migration of VE between nodes fails with close connection error:

vzmigrate 9999 -A -P vzagent_password
connection adjust...
migrate 9999->9999
migration startedconnect
get SSH keys
set SSH keys
prepare migration
close connection


Most likely the reason of the problem is corrupted or misconfigured vzagent.conf file.


Please do the following actions on both nodes to fix the issue:

1. Please backup original C:\Program Files\SWsoft\Virtuozzo\Vzagent\etc\vzagent.conf

2. Copy this file from another working(test) node replacing the existing one.

3. Check the following parameters in new vzagent.conf and correct them according to old ones:

-       <address></address>
-       <backup_node>local</backup_node>

where is IP address of the node and local is default backup node address  which can be represented as remote IP address as well

4. Run the following command to propagate new vzagent.conf file to Service VE: 

vzsveinstall –u

5.Try to migrate VE again.
