[ceph-users] Live migration of VM using librbd and OpenStack

I'm wondering if the following is possible. I have OpenStack (Folsom)
configured to boot VMs from volume using Ceph as a backend for Cinder and
Glance. My setup pretty much follows the Ceph guides for this verbatim.
I've been using this setup for a while now, and it's all been really smooth.
However, I if I try do a live-migration, I get this:
RemoteError: Remote error: RemoteError Remote error:
InvalidSharedStorage_Remote vmhost3 is not on shared storage: Live
migration can not be used without shared storage.
One thing I am doing that may not be normal is that I am trying to do the
"true" live migration in KVM/libvirt, having set this in my nova.conf:
Anyone know if this setup should work? Or if there is something I should
tweak to make it work? I was thinking that having the RBD available via
librbd at both the source and destination host makes that storage shared
storage. Perhaps not if I am trying to do live migration? If I do
OpenStack's normal "live" migration, it will pause the VM and move it,
which is less than ideal, but workable.
