I'm currently one of the maintainers of nova-lxd and I don't think that it
supports live migration. I'm fairly certain migration is broken (
https://bugs.launchpad.net/nova-lxd/+bug/1818078) as it didn't work for me
when I was testing. Live migration appears to be disabled in the tempest
testing (legacy-tempest-dsvm-lxd-ovs test):
SKIPPED: LiveMigrationTest skipped as live-migration is not available

I say "don't think it supports live migration" because I became a
maintainer after that functionality appeared to be implemented; but I'm not
entirely sure the work is complete (i.e. it returns an object that doesn't
function with Nova as your mail indicates). Whether it's because nova
changed and nova-lxd didn't notice (quite likely!) or it never worked
properly, I don't know, sadly.

Thanks, I'll reference it in the bug I raised, too. In terms of getting it
sorted out, it's not going to happen before the stein release, but I do
want to get to it at the beginning of the next cycle.
