The Windows VM disk is on a Ceph storage. After every Live Migration VM is freezes on noVNC console and stops pinged in a few minutes. I've tried to load pve-kernel-4.4.16-1-pve, pve-kernel-4.4.15-1-pve, pve-kernel-4.4.10-1-pve on both nodes, but the same result. Guest OSes: Win8.1, WinServer 2012R2.
