PVE GUI issues with LXC Migration

In Proxmox PVE 6.X I've noticed some odd behavior within the GUI when attempting to migrate an NFS mounted LXC container.

I wonder if someone can repeat so I might be able to determine if this is an internal issue on my end or a bug I should report.

Note: Migration of the Container is working fine so long as you correctly order the sequence through the GUI where the Migrate option is available on all nodes. This appears to be GUI related only.

1. First, migration appears to be unavailable.
2. If you select another PVE node, the Migrate option becomes available
3. Selecting the previous PVE node (Step 1: node02 that was initially unavailable) Migration becomes available
4. Returning to the PVE node where the Migrate option was first available (step 2 node04) - is now unavailable...

I can't reproduce and would guess you have corosync network problems.
Please check your corosync network.
I've not yet moved onto setting up HA. Currently only clustered. I hope that's all that's needed.
FYI: QEMU VMs do not experience this.
