I must correct this, it is possible to create vm's. Cause of this
failure was a flooded /var/log/ partition (libvirt_debug creates lots of
lines >3GB)

I hope the above correction changes your vision on the cause of this
problem. Virsh seems to be working well, except for migration. Running
kvm without libvirt is not something I have experience with and this is
a production server unfortunately, so this would be a last resort.
Is there any other log/data that I need to provide to get a grip on this
problem? If you think it might be a configuration problem (of
kvm-qemu?), where would I need to look? I can compare parameters to the
other box.
