Offline migration using the virsh command and local image

Performing offline migration with virsh does not require a shared storage; however, we are responsible for providing the guest filesystem to the new host (by coping the image file and so on). The offline migration transfers the instance definition without starting the guest on the destination host and without stopping it on the source host. In this recipe, we are going to perform an offline migration using the virsh command on a running KVM guest using an image file for its filesystem.
