The process finished successfully, took about 4 hours per vm, not sure if 
this is typical or not, but this being our first test run i was afraid that 
it may have stopped and was unsure.  I will check the VDSM.log file on the 
next test migration i do.

during the import process engine shows status like "Initializing",
"Copying disk x/y" and "Finishing" next to the VM.

Could you check in the engine status of the import task? Did it finish
successfully or with an error? You can also check the vdsm.log for any

Best regards,
