Hi there,

first, it seems you're running Citrix XenServer so better place to ask this 
kind of question is on their official forums at 

It seems like you don't have shared storage in your pool - shared storage could 
be iSCSI volume, NFS export, of FC volume - visible to all members of your 
XenServer pool. When you are using local storage for your VMs, you cannot 
migrate them in current version of XenServer (it should be possible in upcoming 
new versions of XenServer IIRC). You can relocate VM from local storage to 
another host using VM Export function after shutting it down and then import 
the VM on the another host. In case of using ext local storage (not LVM), you 
can copy virtual disks with scp between hosts and then attach them to new VM on 
the other host (after renaming the copied file with new UUID and SR rescan).
