Migrate VM from dead node.

Hi guys!

I have 4 nodes in cluster and one storage. But I don't use HA. Live migration works fine.
How to migrate VM when one node will be down. I'm trying manually move vm.conf but it is read-only.

root@pvenode1:~# mv /etc/pve/nodes/pvenode4/qemu-server/113.conf /etc/pve/nodes/pvenode1/qemu-server/
mv: cannot move '/etc/pve/nodes/pvenode4/qemu-server/113.conf' to '/etc/pve/nodes/pvenode1/qemu-server/113.conf': Permission denied

I cannot change permissions also.
