Since this is the first generation of VM Migration, it doesn't move disk or network.

You'll need to use nfs/iscsi (for the disk), and share the same Layer 2 domain[1] (for the network) for it to keep running.

These will be addressed in future versions.

[1] you can also have the guest announce its IP address with BGP to the host, but that's uncommon.

...it occurs to me that doesn't understand using iscsi as a backing disk. my bad.
