How I can change live migration to use the restart migration for Bulk Migrate?
Without that Bulk migration will not work (bulk stop/bulk migrate/bulk start - it`s not true).

Thanks.

LXC will be migrated in stop mode of course (no live migration for lxc)
so as a result Bulk Migration doesn't work with LXC? (yes)
...and my question is "How I can change live migration to use the restart migration for Bulk Migrate?"
where I can add "--restart" option to LXC "Bulk Migrate"?

I don't know what your problem is, I don bulk migrates for maintenance, the VM's do live, the LXC containers do stop migration as they should. I never configured something specially regarding this.

I need migrate 200 LXC containers between two nodes with minimum downtime. Now its possible to migrate one by one LXC because Bulk Migrate doesn`t know how to migrate LXC with "restart" mode.

Found this via search, same issue, have a few dozen containers. one at a time has the option for restart mode. Bulk migrate doesnt seem to have the option to use restart :-(
